The Bi-color Chromis range from the Christmas Island and northwestern Australia to the French Polynesian and Line Islands. These fishes are primarily black with the caudal peduncle and caudal fin being white. These fish are one of the more peaceful of all the damselfish species, and make a hardy addition to both reef and fish only aquariums.
This species does well alone in small aquariums of at least 30 gallons or more. When trying to maintain a group of these fishes it is ideal to ensure they have adequate space in an aquarium at least four feet in length.
The Bi-color Chromis feeds on a varied diet of meaty foods such as enriched frozen brine and small mysis shrimp, herbivore preparations, and marine flaked foods.
