Peach Chromis

anyone ever heard of these?

I was walking through a local pet store (mainly does dogs and birds but a nice mini fish setup) and saw a tank full of them. I'd never seen them before or even heard of them (thought chromis only came in blue or green). i'm curious as to their nature and hopefully that they arn't a simple painted fish (sadly this place sells painted goldfish and tetras from time to time) any info is appreciated

Never heard of it either. More then likely the lfs got the name/species wrong. A photo would help but was it a Dispar Anthias also known as the Peach Fairy Basslet? Also could be Chromis insolata or the sunshine fish.

sadly no pic, it had the same body as a blue/green chromis only it was a peach yellow/orange color. size was on par with a green chromis, definitely not the first you mentioned (that came up on my google search for info)
