Need some Chromis info

Anyone know if Blue (Chromis cyaneus) and Green (Chromis viridis) Chromis will school together?

They will most of the time. I find odd numbers (IMHO) are better than even, and I try to get more than 3. How big is your tank?

Do the blue chromis need to school for long happiness/health. I was thinking of getting one for 30 g, which already has two true prec, red striped blenny and am planning on completing with a lemonpeel.

Thought three blue chromis might overstock.

Also, do you need to get them all at once, or can you add some at different times?

ya could go with one but the schooling is real cool if there are enough if not they kinda do their own thing !! imo yes you are better with adding them all at one time !! i had 5 and then added 5 but the dominate male killed/chased off all of them and killed like 3 before letting the smaller ones into the school !! imo they can be kinda aggressive as well but no real harm done !!
