This Blue-Green Black-axil Chromis is simple to take care of beautiful, peaceful, and beautiful. The member of the Pomacentridae family is distinguished by its stunning light aqua dorsal aspect which slowly transforms into an green belly that sparkles. The juvenile will not have the black blotch located at the bottom of the pectoral fin frequently conflating the Blue/Green Black-axil Chromis. When the Black-axil Chromis starts to mature, the black blotch will begin to appear. The Blue/Green Chromis is attractive not only because of its beauty but also because of its calm attitude (despite it being classified as a damselfish) and its ability to be kept alongside almost all community fish species as well corals and invertebrates.

Native to deep to shallow lagoons of the Indo-Pacific as well as the South Pacific, ranging from the Ryukyu Islands of Japan up to the western part of Australia. It is also found in the majority of Oceania islands, with the notable only exceptions being Hawaii as well as the Pitcairn Islands. Wild specimens like to gather in large shoals that are located in the clear waters of lagoons and passageways, and the seaward slopes of reefs. In the wild, they prefer to swim in the midst of the branching corals, such as Acropora. In the aquarium at home, the Blue/Green Black-axil Chromis is most effective in similar conditions and can be found swimming throughout the aquarium’s water column. Small communities of the Blue/Green black-axil Chromis can add a stunning and striking glimmer of beauty to every reef that is a well-established, larger system.

Overall the Chromis is blue and green. Chromis is very robust and is able to live for up to 15 years inside aquariums that have high-quality water. Ensure that you feed your fish several times throughout the day by feeding a varied diet of meaty meals as well as herbivore flakes and frozen meals. Foods that are rich in vitamins can aid in maintaining body colors.

Certain aquarists are able to successfully breed black-axil Blue/Green Chromis in their home aquarium. The bodies of males who are getting ready to nest, shifts to a light yellow hue. But, successful breeding requires the perfect water conditions in the most extensive of non-predatory aquarium systems.
