Bleeker's Chromis

(Chrysiptera bleekeri)

Chrysiptera Damselfish should be added to well established aquariums with plenty of room to swim. Plenty of rock work should be provided for grazing and hiding. Chrysiptera Damselfish may pick at small benthic crustaceans. Chrysiptera Damselfish are quite easy and hardy they make good beginner fish. Be sure to thoroughly research each species as some Chrysiptera Damselfish are known to be quite territorial and aggressive. They should be housed with large tank mates that are not easily harrassed. A diet of meaty and algae based foods which includes Spirulina should be provided. Males and females are difficult to differentiate however males tend to be slightlyly larger.

The Bleeker's Chromis are also known as the Bleeker's Damselfish. Not often seen in the aquarium trade. This incredibly beautiful fish is blue with a yellow stripe directly under its dorsal and on its dorsal fin. They can grow to a little over 3".

We recommend a minimum aquarium size of 30 gallons or larger for this species.
