    Morning People.

    I would just like to know if its ok to add 3-5 Green Chromis's to my current tank.
    Its a nice looking fish and also that you can put them in a school is awesome.
    Here is my current list of fish i have in my DT:
    1 x FoxFace
    1 x Maroon Clownfish
    1 x Regal Tang
    1 x Green Wrasse
    1 x Yellowtail Damsel

    DT is a 4 foot tank about 250l

    I was thinking the Damsel might be the problem, but he seems ok. Not aggresive at all this little bugger.

    The maroon clown might have issues as well.

    But tank is big enough for them.

    So is that a yay or nay answer.
    Not sure if I must, I have heard stories about Damsels being aggresive but mine looks calm.:thumbup:

    yay for the Blue yellow tail damsel. He/she should stay closer to the bottom part of the tank and normally stay close to their territory.

    look out rather for the maroon clown. She most likely will have more issues.

    Yellowtail damsels are fine IME. I've had one for about 4 years now and it's never shown any aggression to anything. As others said, it's the maroon clowns that can be nasty buggers.

    Thanks guys.
    Will be getting 3-5 x green Chromis's for my tank then.
    I agree with Riaan, my clown wanted to go for my hand when trying to zap the aptasia with Red Sea Aptasia-X...Dont want me to kill the aptasia, they are his friends.:biggrin:
