ID on chromis

Postby ggoosen » Thu 15 Oct, 2015 12:24 pm

Anyone know if these are reef chromis

That's what I bought them as, but the colourAtion is different to others i see in stores and online.

Particularly the blank band is thicker on these, there are no black marks in the tail. Yellow is more "pastel" and the silver is not as "shiny" as others I've seen

They are quite territorial as well and have a go at any new tank mates.
