I wonder if he'll eat the chromis when he's bigger...

Glad to hear it Tim,,can't believe he's friends with a chromis though Mine just ate one this morning

IMO you could get a tiny one and keep it in your cube for a bit...I would upgrade at some point though

I think it's a trick. I'm pretty sure the angler is just eyeing the Chromis like a huge porterhouse steak, but can't fathom how to eat it yet. I'm positive as soon as he grows a tiny bit more, the Chromis will be invited over for lunch

I read about someone keeping one in a 5g. I read they hardly move around so I imagine it's possible to do it in a smaller aquarium. There are several species from all over thee world some that don't grow larger than 4" up to other species that grow to over 12". I would think a 4" would be fairly happy in a 10g alone with a small fish for breakfast. Mind you I've never tried raising one so I have no valid say in the matter, just a theory.
