All sound good. If you plan on a reef might want to pass on the lemonpeel.

Before my Lemonpeel died, he did ok with my coral. He rarely nipped. But it all depends on your specimen.

U know that funny because as I read this I was walking out of my lfs with 2 blue-green chromis. I did not know that. I will see how they do before I buy a third.

And with the lemonpeel I gonna give it a shot if he starts acting up to the fowlr he goes

Alright when we say that chromis don't do good in pairs what kinda things happen. I have none that is a outcast and he's hiding right now and I can't find him. The other one is playing with my clowns and the three look fine and eating fine
