Although they are a damsel, they are very peaceful fish. They tend to not fight with other fish.

Chromis for Sale: Blue and Green Chromis and other Reef Species

I bought a trio when i first started my tank. Down the road i wanted a larger school and added more. All the chromis I've added after the original were picked on and killed. Regardless if i added new chromis as a single or in a small group....they all ended up getting killed.

If you want a blue and yellow fish and are thinking of a decent size, look into a bicolour angel.

What fish do you have in your tank now? My lemon peel was a bully even my clown was afraid of it and ended being taken out of the 55 and put in my junk tank with my blue devil so far there hasn't been any real fighting.

It's a nice fish but I think it's dependant on the individual specimen how they behave.

Mine is very timid and I've never seen it nip at any coral, but I've heard they can be the complete opposite.

We have a yellow tailed damsel in our 55gal. He hasn't caused any problem with any of our fish. They are one of the least aggressive damsels and their bodies are a beautiful bright blue... and they're cheap and hardy!

Not necissarily mean but pushy with food, and the chromis in my school tank are quiet and shy, where the first pair the school had were pushy and irritating to the other fish. I believe it's all in the separate personalities
