Chromis question.

Hey guys,
My 75 gallon reef currently has a foxface, a maroon clown, and a YT damsel. I am considering adding 3-4 green chromis, but have heard mixed things about adding them in schools in a tank this size. Does anyone have experience with this?

I see no reason not to. I haven't heard what you've heard so it must not be all that big of a deal.

My 75 g has four...no issues with tank mates although they do have a pecking order amongst themselves, but nothing serious.

Tank mates are 2 ocillarious clowns and (as of yesterday) 2 RBTAs, a one spot Foxface, a Black Capped Basslett, two Carpenter's Wrasses', a Neon Goby, and. a Six Spot Goby,

+1 on the pecking order and I don't like their look under straight actinics. But Very peaceful, easy, cheap and playful fish.

Thanks guys, Sorry I wasn't very clear. It was the pecking order and them killing each other off until only one is left that I was worried about.

No worries.....you'll be able to tell the pecking order according to they'r size...they were the same when I bought them and now I have S, M, L, & XL. Lol

+1 on the actinics....they look like a "hole" in the water.

I had 3 but 1 was slightly smaller than the other 2, he got hassled to death. Try to find similar sized fish. The remaining 2 still have this problem but I added more love rock and hiding places and they seem fine now. However this is in a 40 gallon which initially had very little live rock.
