    Default My Chromis host Acros?

    I've never kept Green Chromis in the past, but thought what the heck and I bought 5 to have a nice little school of fish.
    3 survived, 2 just up and disappeared for whatever reason.

    Yesterday I noticed a new behavior.....They like to hang out in the middle of my 8" birds-nest colony. They just sit in there perched like a hawkfish or something.

    Is this normal for them?

    Why do they do this?

    This is quite like their natural behavior in the wild. I have seen huge schools of them hanging out in acro colonies on the GBR. Most excellent to see animals exhibit natural behaviors in out tanks.
