Get anthias instead then. They're much prettier and don't do the dying off thing

If you have the budget for anthias, I agree. But at $25 and up for a single one that can get pricey quick. Plus depending on the type of anthias, they can be difficult to get eating.
I bought my chromis like 2 months ago and still have them all. Minus the one that went into the overflow and just disappeared.
But yeah, a small school of maybe 5 anthias would look awesome and most likely make your foxface a bit more social.

I used to have blue reef chromis, alot bigger and different than the regular blue/green ones you always see. The blue reef's are a bit more $$, I think at liveaquaria they are $15 each. But they are very blue, school well and have black streaks on them, quite cool in my opinion

Just looked them up. Those are actually pretty nice.

lol I wouldnt steer ya wrong.

I like having different fish and those are way different than the average chromi. They can get to almost 3 inches too which is a nice size, especially with a 220g they would be visible from a distance unlike the little green/blue ones

Can the anthias go in a 55 gallon tank and if so.... How many? And can they be added at different times? Ot go they need to be added at the same time?
