How many blue green chromis would I need to get a good schooling effect?

How many blue green chromis would I need to get a good schooling effect? I'm looking for some activity and I really like the schooling look. I'm thinking 6, they'd be joining a yellow tang, two clowns, and a lawnmower blenny in my 125 gl. Thanks.

Yep, I think you would get a schooling effect with six.

They are very cool fish!

Have you seen this kind yet?

Thanks, I'm thinking 6. The orange line's look very cool. I'm going to talk to my lfs to see if he can get some. I try to support local and he can get most everything.

Sounds like a plan.

I saw them a little while back, and I had never seen them before then. I really like them, I think the little bit of orange adds a lot to the fish! They are pretty rare too, so you can have something nobody else has for a great price, lol.
