Let me think on that a bit, ok, that is enough. FISH!!! LOL I love my blue/green chormis. They add a lot of action to the tank. Thought they would school more but they venture out on there own a lot. The smallest one has attached to my Kole Yellow Eye like a puppy. LOL

Thanks!

i'm leaning towards the fish myself lol. It would be nice if they would school, I'm kinda hoping they will bring out the other fish a bit more. My blue tang is still kinda skittish and the tomini is just plain shy.

I agree but they didn't have any at the LFS. LOL But that is ok. I still like mine.

I've seen the blue reefs in person, and to be honest they weren't as blue as they are online. BUT I still intend to go ahead with them. From what I read alot depends on their diet to keep the colors so vibrant.

Isn't that the case with most any fish?

We have 4? In our 75g because of that. It is pretty sweet how they live up to their name depending on angle? I've seen ours almost emerald green and they flash and then vivid blue.

Mine as well. Do you have any problems with having an even number? Several people on this site as well as at the LFS said it is best to have an odd number with them. Not sure why but who am I to argue???? LOL
