The Blue/Green Reef Chromis, scientifically referred to as Chromis viridis, stands out in marine aquariums with its vibrant blue and green colors. These peaceful fish thrive in a well-maintained reef environment, exhibiting captivating schooling behavior when kept in groups of five or more.

**Care Guidelines:**

1. **Tank Setup:** Provide a minimum 30-gallon tank with stable water quality. Incorporate live rock structures to mimic a reef environment and offer hiding spots.

2. **Water Parameters:** Maintain stability with a temperature range of 74-80°F (23-27°C), pH levels between 8.1-8.4, and specific gravity of 1.020-1.025. Regular testing and water changes are crucial.

3. **Diet:** Blue/Green Reef Chromis are omnivores; offer a varied diet of high-quality flakes, pellets, and live or frozen foods, including zooplankton and small crustaceans.

4. **Compatibility:** These peaceful fish coexist well with non-aggressive reef inhabitants. Avoid housing them with larger, aggressive species.

**Common Diseases:**

While generally hardy, Blue/Green Reef Chromis are susceptible to common marine diseases. Notably, they are prone to Uronema disease. Keep an eye out for symptoms and take preventive measures. Be sure to contact us if you have any questions on medicating your fish or if you need to purchase medications. All our quarantined fish are guaranteed to be free of ALL parasites once picked up from our full quarantine service.

1. **Uronema Disease:** Blue/Green Reef Chromis are notorious for this condition. Watch for lethargy, rapid gill movement, and red or ulcerated areas. Quarantine and treat affected individuals promptly.

2. **Ich and Velvet:** Monitor for white spots (Ich) or a velvety film (Velvet) on the skin. Isolate and treat affected fish promptly.

3. **Bacterial Infections:** Maintain cleanliness to prevent bacterial infections. Quarantine and treat fish showing signs of fin rot or open sores.

Regular observation, a balanced diet, and a well-kept environment are crucial for the health of Blue/Green Reef Chromis. Seek advice from experienced aquarists for personalized guidance based on your aquarium setup, especially considering the species' susceptibility to Uronema disease.
