The Green Chromis is a popular choice for many saltwater aquarists for it's peaceful nature, simple yet beautiful coloration, and ease of care. It's body is a stunning chromatic apple green that also shines blue depending on the way the light hits it.  

They are active swimmers and will feel most comfortable in a shoal with other members of their species. They can live fine with most other community fish and are completely reef safe. Their diet should consist of live, frozen and flake or pellet foods, both meaty and herbivorous. Vitamin rich foods will enhance their color and help keep them vibrant.
