    Hi guys!

    Two Q's...

    1.) Can I keep a green chromis by itself?

    2.) Will a sixline cause problems with my cleaner shrip?

    HI LRS

    1.) Can I keep a green chromis by itself? yes you can, but they look really great if you have 6+

    2.) Will a sixline cause problems with my cleaner shrip? also yes, very awesome fish

    Get the chromis first, a territorial sixline is something to worry about.

    a chromis should NOT be kept on its own. it is a shoaling fish and requires the presence of other chromis to feel safe and interact properly with. I would sugesst a bare minimum of 5. Yes the fish would live and survive on its own but its unnatural for the fish and this can cause stress to it.


    a six line wrass is a lovely fish in my view, ive onlky ever had peacful ones, but others have had some very aggresive six lines. I am not sure of what size tank you have but six line wrasses are best in larger tanks with lots of LR and a good pod population as they feed and hunt constantly.

    hope that helps
