Black & White Chromis Information
An easy fish to care for that is able to school well is the Black and White Chromis. This semi-aggressive species is quick to adjust to the new environment and is very durable and therefore an ideal choice for anyone who is a hobbyist. Include plenty of rock decorations and live plants for this fish to conceal and swim through. It is hard to tell the difference between males and females. The male tends to be bigger and can become more aggressive with females once it is time to breed. Similar to other damsels, the male is the one responsible for caring for the eggs, and is very aggressive while protecting his brood. This Black & White Chromis’ diet should include nutritious meaty meals that are vitamin rich and flake or pellet foods that are suitable for marine fish. They are around 3″ and can be placed in a group at the same time. They can be found in the Pacific Ocean in small schools on coral reefs along the coast as deep as 20 meters.
