Do different species of Chromis School Together?

I was wondering if different species of Chromis would school. If not, would they fight? Thanks.

Ime blue/green and the black axil have schooled together. I can't speak for other species, but I can't see why not.

Ime chromis are very peaceful towards other fish. To each other however, they can be vicious. I had an original 3 i bought. I tried adding more afterwards. Each of the additions was killed over a very short time.

They are cheap enough. Lol they can go after one another, as long as they leave my clowns alone and future tank mates.
