Unfortunately, probably not. They will steadily pick off the weakest link.
I bought a school of 11, years ago, and their numbers continuously dwindled. They would harass one member, till he passed, and move on to the next. The last surviving Chromis died last year, and will be the last Damsel to ever see my tank. I'll go with some Anthias, for a nice open water swimmer!
Less aggressive or not, Chromis are still a Damsel at heart.

No I have 4 anthias in my tank and are not aggressive at all only if you get two males will they fight to the death for who will be the alpha male and if you get lucky and get all females then one will transform in to a male at take the alpha males place. That can be bad though to because if you buy one male some times one of the females will still transform and now you get another dead and that sucks when they go for 30 $ but no aggression to other fish.

They have all gotta go lol. Good call with the anthias they are lovely specially the square spot great colours.

Has anyone got any good tips on getting fish out without having to destroy your aqua scape? I'm thinking food and a net tho it may take a while lol

When I had to remove 2 Seargant Major Damsels from my old 135, I plugged as many of the caves that I could with various kitchen utensils ( wife loved that), added some food, and went after em'! Messing with the hideouts threw them off enough. Still took hours, but eventually I got em.
