Yeah, they prefer groups of 3 or more to school with. They get stressed without other chromis around them. Sorry :/ they really are beautiful fish. Have you considered a neon goby?

Do regular blue/green chromis need friends? LA doesn't say they do.

I believe all chromis are schoolers (but they only shoal in a tank)

I now have 4 blue reef chromis and they do actually school up together. I had 5 but I believe the one that they were chasing probably got caught finally so I now have 4. I was warned that they could kill off one or two in their school which is why i went with an initial stocking of 5. From what I've heard they also like odd numbered groupings so I may lose another one eventually. :-(

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
