Schooling Chromis

Hello All,

I am tossing around the idea of getting enough blue/green chromis so they will school. Anyone have luck with this? What would be the minimum number of chromis?

They would live in a 55 gallon.

Thank you,

defenestrator

i have had some luck with this i would say you would need a minimum of 5 and keep in mind they stress easily, and that they need to eat alot.

I have 3 right now and they stick around together more since I added some other fish. They are very active and swim alot more than my 2 damsels in the other tank.

If adding 5, should I add them all at once, just a few at a time, or even just one at a time?
