Chromis are a wonderful addition to any tank; they are hardy, colorful, and peaceful. Their peaceful nature makes them a great choice for a reef tank. To ensure their health and well-being, it is important to provide an appropriate habitat for them. To create this habitat, it is essential to provide a 30 gallon or larger aquarium, with plenty of live rock. This will give them plenty of places to hide and swim. It is also important to house them in groups of six or more to allow them to display their natural behaviors. With the right set up and care, chromis can make a great addition to any tank.

The Black Bar Chromis is an omnivore that needs a varied diet in order to stay healthy and thrive. Meaty foods such as frozen mysis and vitamin enriched brine shrimp should be fed in combination with a quality flake food to ensure a balanced diet. Additionally, vegetable based foods should also be included to provide essential nutrients. All in all, this will ensure your Black Bar Chromis remains in optimal health.
