The Green Chromis is easy to care for, beautiful, and peaceful. The Green Chromis is desirable not only for its beauty, but also for its peaceful demeanor (despite its designation as a true damselfish) and ability to be kept with almost all other community fish, invertebrates, and corals.
Native to reefs ranging from mid-depth to shallow lagoons of the Indo-Pacific and South Pacific, ranging from the Ryukyu Islands of Japan down to the western parts of Australia. It can also be seen around most of the Oceania islands with the exception of Hawaii and the Pitcairn Islands. Wild specimens prefer to school in large shoals in clear lagoons, passages and seaward reef slopes. In the wild preferring to swim amongst branching corals like Acropora. In the home aquarium, the Green Chromis does best in similar environments and will actively swim at all levels of the aquarium water column. In fact, small schools of the Green Chromis add a dazzling and dramatic shimmer of beauty to almost any larger, well-established reef system.
Overall, the Green Chromis is very hardy and can live between 8 to 15 years in aquariums with excellent water quality.
Some aquarists have successfully bred the Green Chromis in the home aquarium. Interestingly, the body color of mature males, ready to nest, changes to a muted yellow color. However, breeding success requires perfect water parameters in only the largest of non-predatory aquarium systems.
