    Hello everybody!

    4 days ago I added 4 green chromis to my 34G marine tank, I know that the chromis will set up a pecking order, however one chromis in particular isnt looking good. It is very thin and is definitly at the bottom of the pecking order and won't eat. The other 3 are still challenging each other.

    So here are my questions..

    How long will my chromis be before the pecking order is set?

    Can I do anything to help my starving chromis?

    Thanks,
    Ben

    Hi ben chromis are best kept in odd numbers and they will pick on the odd one,,, in smaller tanks , in larger tanks chromis can be kept in large schools , do you have a Qtank to transfer other chromis ?? and if so try to feed with lights off to let them settle in
