Chromis

Chromis are related to damselfish but show much less aggression as they grow. They seem to do best in a school of three or more, and in larger numbers make a great aquarium display. Excellent for the reef aquarium since they do not bother any invertebrates or any coral, they usually grow to about 2 inches in the saltwater aquarium.
