I agree with everyone else, damsels are just too aggressive. I had an azure damselfish when I first started, and he went after everything (including my puffers)!

I have had green chromis successfully, and I have seen those blue reef chromis online and wanted them because they are really pretty fish. While these are technically damsels, as are clowns, they seem to be very peaceful and school nicely.

Clowns are always great. I love them. Iíve kept ocellaris and percula clowns, and they are awesome fish. So much fun to watch.

I have heard that they will (the chromis) eventually kill of the weakest member of the group untillxtheir are only a few left and that they can be fairly territorial in a peaceful tank. Don't know if this is actually true or not.

Sadly I didn't hear about this out until I purchased two of them...

I would love a school of 5 blue reef chromis, theyre just very pricey, I know its super fat fetched but imagine the same blue on a clownfish!
