The Black Bar Chromis originated from reefs located in the Western Pacific, and is typically found in branches of coral heads. They are yellow to tan in appearance and have a distinctive vertical black bar at the point where the body joins the tail.

Set up the fish with a 30 gallon or more aquarium that has plenty of live rock available for the chromis fish to hide in. They prefer being in groups of at least six. They tend to be peaceful, except when they live alone.

This Black Bar Chrromis can be described as an omnivore that should be fed both meaty and plant-based food items. Feed frozen mysis and vitamin-enriched brine shrimp, as well as high-quality flake foods.

Information About Black Bar Chromis

The Black-bar Chromis retrofasciata has a delicate color balance. A prominent black stripe across its posterior is contrasted against a yellowish-tan body. Juveniles have a subtle hint of neon blue around the eye and running along the bottom fins as well as the lower part of the tail.

There are a few fish that they can confuse with. Different damsels could have similar coloring however they will not have the black vertical bar that runs along the rear on the back of the body. The other names for them are the Black Back Chromis as well as Blackbar chromis and in Australia they are referred to as the Blackbar Puller.
