An easy fish to keep that will school nicely is the Black & White Chromis. This semi aggressive adapts quickly to a new aquarium setting and is very hardy, which makes it the ideal option for any hobbyist. Provide ample amounts of decorations and live rock to allow this fish to hide and swim thru. It is difficult to differentiate between a male and female. Typically, the male is larger and will become aggressive towards the female when he is ready to mate. Like other damsels the male is responsible for the care of the eggs and will become very territorial while guarding his brood. The Black & White Chromis' diet should consist of vitamin enriched meaty foods and flake/pellet foods for marine fish. They have an adult size of about 3" and can be added in a group simultaneously. They are found in Pacific Ocean in small schools on coastal reefs up to 20 meters deep.

ACCLIMATION: Avoid exposing new aquatic life to bright lights after opening the box. Turn off aquarium lights prior to floating aquatic life. Allow the sealed bag with your new fish to float in your aquarium for at least 15 minutes (but no longer than one hour) to ensure the water in the bag matches the temperature in your aquarium. A bacteria booster addition can assist with the addition of new aquatic life. Petco offers free water testing in store to determine if your water is safe for the addition of new aquatic life. DIET: A well-balanced diet consists of a variety of flakes, pellets, freeze-dried and frozen foods, depending on the species. FEEDING: Feed sparingly and no more than fish can eat in 1-2 minutes. Overfeeding can quickly foul the water, especially in smaller aquariums.
