3 Blue Chromis w/my damsels?

Check my info, if I add 3 Blue Chromis, should they be oky w/my current critters? I will be removing the other damsels in the next couple of months?

Thanks!

+++EDIT+++
The reason I am asking is I am buying a few snails/conch and might as well add a few fish, so I don't waste shipping charged.

The chromis will not bother the inverts you want to add. I have seven of them in my 125.

I have 2 in my 29G. The only aggression i've seen is the big one chases the smaller one around occasionally.

What about the damsels? I would like to add them and then remove the damsels, eventually.

Also, do they school?

Chromis do school together, but don't school with the damsels. The damsels will beat the chromis up. I wouldn't add the chromis together with the damsels. Also, sometimes, the chromis will beat their "fellow chromis" up, so 1 by 1, the chromis will die off til there's 1 left.

If the chromis are small my guess is the damsels will kick their butts..

Yeah, I just can't decide which ones to get rid of first. Believe it or not, they all have different personalities.

i have two chromies with damsels (yellow tail, three stripe, blue)

and they pretty much leave them alone, the chromies usually stay together in the open water and the damsels like to swim within the rocks. there is a little agression during/after feeding time but everyone gets food.
