Schooling Chromis

Heres the scenario, I had one single blue/green reef chromi (had 3 but 2 died right after i got them, lukily had the liveaquaria 10 day guarantee tho), and just got 2 more , one of the 2 new ones is schooling with the old one, but the other new one is just being a loner. Will they eventually all school together, cause thats what I was hoping for.

yea I have a 72g tank, I kinda answered my own question though, this morning I woke up and after they woke up all 3 were schooling together, it looks soo cool. If i had a huge tank I'd get like 6 or 7 cause it would like really cool.

I'd heard adding any new b/g chromis might cause problems if they already had the male female thing worked out. I've got 2 and would like 2 or 3 more. Anybody think I can add new ones? Should they be larger or smaller than what I have, or does it matter?

I've heard they school best with 5-7, but that was just the opinion of the LFS. so who knows.

How big of a tank do you think you would need to do a school of 5-7
