My chromis fishes have very unique personalities. The larger green one seems to pick on the smaller blue one. The green chromis has gone to the point in which he's bitten the top part of the fin of the blue chromis. They also hide behind the coral whenever I walk by my tank. Ive seen chromis adults 8in long in my local petstore.

I think, instead of buying large butterfly and angelfish, it will be wise to buy small and make them grow in our aquarium. Large fishes are more delicate and get stressed easily. However I may be wrong. But according to me 'Always buy small fishes'.....

    God the fish are so much money, your better off buying a bigger fish for the money, it's always a 50/50 chance anyway.

I have bought one Klein butterflyfish from the local marine fish shop, and I have to say that I have fallen in love with this fish.
It is not only hardy, but also clever and cute. I used to put the live Athemias in the strainer and feed my fishes with holding Athemias in the strainer, and suddenly a Klein butterflyfish got into the strainer to eat Athemia, so I could feel his movement, I could really play with him. I recommend beginners to buy this fish. In my opinion, it is fairly pretty. His colour would change to be a bit dull at night time. Now I also have other species of butterflyfish, Angelfish, Clownfish, Wrasses, Tangs, Cardinal, Dottyback as his tankmates, and they can cope well.

I've seen quite a few of these fish in the wild. I come from Australia but I live south of the great barrier reef. They are funny to watch when snorkeling. I hope to get one in my marine tank i'm getting soon.

This is a great fish. I have kept them in a pair for many years. This fish should be bought when it is grown up as young specimens contain less fat in their body, and if it takes time to start eating, then it may be a problem.

These little buggers rival Maroon clowns in nastiness even at a young age! I had to get rid of mine since they bit HARD to "protect" it's anemone when I had to feed my snake eel! It was only 2" at the time!!!! If you like the coloring, the saddle backs (tank bred) are a better and nicer choice!

This is my favorite butterflyfish. Even though I am an expert marine aquarist, I still like to keep them.

We got the fish yesterday and he immediately started eating the mysis. He seems to get along well with the other tank mates and he's picking at algae all day long. He only dives into the rocks when he feels threatened. Otherwise he's out in the open all day.

Can I feed fresh water feeders to a lion fish?

    Hypothetically, yes. However, the fresh water feeder fish will endure great stress before they are eaten, as they are fresh water, and not salt water. I would not recommend the act.
