Pet Green Chromis For Sale

The pet Green Chromis is desirable not only for its beauty, but also for its durability, peaceful demeanor (despite its designation as a true damselfish), and ability to be kept with almost all other community fish, invertebrates, and corals. Being inexpensive and almost always available from a marine fish supplier, beginners and experienced aquarists alike can enjoy this fish. Even though the Green Chromis appear to be a plain blue/green, they add a very flashy presence with their metallic coloration and are fascinating to watch as they monopolize the upper part of the water column.

Scientific Name: Chromis viridis

Common Name: Blue-green Chromis, Green Chromis, Blue Green Damselfish, Blue-green Puller, Green Puller, and Blue Puller.

Size: 0.5-1.5 inches and matures to 3 inches in length

Origin: Indo-Pacific from the Red Sea to the Line Islands, Marquesan Islands and the Tuamoto Islands, then northward to the Ryukyu Islands and south to the Great Barrier Reef and New Caledonia. The Green Chromis are found in Africa and Indonesia. 

Habitat: In the home aquarium, the Blue Green Reef Chromis does best in similar to their native environments and will actively swim at all levels of the aquarium water, schooling in large shoals amongst branching corals like Acropora.

Diet: These dazzling Damsels will accept just about any type of marine based diet you offer them. Feed your pet Green Chromis a varied diet including frozen mysis shrimp, raw shrimp, silversides, flake, pellet and other commercially prepared foods. For best care, feed the Green Chromis several times throughout the day with a varied diet of meaty foods, herbivore flakes, and frozen preparations. Vitamin-enriched foods may also help to preserve body colorations.

Temperament: Very peaceful, the pet Green Chromis acts as a 'dithering' fish and will draw out shy and retiring fish that would otherwise be reclusive and stay hidden in the rockwork or behind decorations. It is best to purchase these fish in uneven numbers if you will only be getting a few. If frightened, excited or nervous, these marine fish will school together in close formation and are easily bullied and harassed by semi-aggressive tankmates. Because pet Green Chromis will develop a hierarchy, keeping fewer than 6 fish will leave the “low man on the totem pole” vulnerable to aggression.

Difficulty Rating: Pet Green Chromis are moderate to moderately easy to keep and can reward you with an interesting display in the aquarium for years to come, yet they are probably one of or the most delicate of the Chromis Genus.

Captive Requirements: Green Chromis require a minimum tank size of 30 gallons. These beautiful Damselfish need good water quality, the proper numbering of a group, and tank mates that are peaceful and selective semi-aggressive. Being planktivores, the Green Chromis do need to be fed at least 3 times a day. Chromis like the upper parts of aquariums but do appreciate branching SPS corals to hide in, though artificial versions are often accepted.

Reef Compatible: Yes

Reproduction: Some aquarists have successfully bred the Blue Green Reef Chromis in the home aquarium. Interestingly, the body color of mature males Green Chromis, 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.

Additional Information: The Blue Green Chromis prefer sub-tidal reef flats and lagoons from depths of 5 to 39 feet. (1.5 to 12 m) They are typically found in large schools that can number into the hundreds. Pet Green Chromis hover above branching corals, especially Acropora, in which they take shelter and sleep in at night.

Water Requirements: 72-78° F, dKH 8-12, pH 8.1-8.4, sg 1.020-1.025

Life Span: 8 to 15 years in aquariums with excellent water quality.
