Fishy Monday: The Sunshine Chromis
Today for Fishy Monday I'm going to tell you about the Sunshine Chromis.
The Sunshine Chromis is found in the Indo-Pacific and ranges in size of 1-3 inches.Their description is a light pink body with a white belly and a yellow top.The dorsal fin is also bright yellow.The tail,back dorsal fin,pectoral fin,and mouth are a clear white,like the belly.They also come in colors like a blueish purple body,blue face,yellow back,black & yellow tail,and blue fins.(I prefer the blue version in my tank.If i only had one...) They are omnivores feeding on a large supply of foods.Shrimp,plankton,algae,even younger fish.Rare though.they are one of the more peaceful,yet hardy,members of the Chromis family.Chromises are also known as Damsel Fish.Groups can be found from sizes of 5-9.
That's my report on the Sunshine Chromis.I gought the pictures from www.aquacon.com and www.bluezooaquatics.com and the info from www.livingreefs.com,www.bluezooaquatics.com,and www.aquacon.com. The End. (P.S,sorry about the little info,this is a rare fish and I couldn't find much info.)
