You need something to swim out front IMO. Everything else you have hovers in certain areas close to rock, reef or substrate. Go with the chromis. I'd consider 3 only if your tank is mature and water readings are consistently near optimal.

FYI on chromis: they usually kill themselves off from time to time. I tried 2 groups of 3 chromis at 2 different time. Both time, 2 of them would die and the strongest 1 lives. That's how I ended up with 2 strongest ones. These 2 don't even school together. The bigger one always chases the smaller one away when he sees him.

Other peoples have had luck with them but I personally didn't :/

That'd be me. Had 3 in a previous tank. Lived and schooled for 3 years. Currently have 5 that school and have been together for 4 or 5 months now.

yeah I had heard they can be trouble but I'll probably give them a shot once the tank gets a little older. Plus they are inexpensive so that is a plus in their corner.

I am with FishFrik. Maybe its the locality but I cant get more than three to live at once. Usually two die off with one being the victor. I add one and everyone lives happily. Add another then in a week or two two more end up "belly-up"
