The family Pomacentridae is one of the largest families of reef fishes. There are more than 330 species, most of which inhabit tropical reef environments. They can be found in a wide array of habitats, from tidal creeks to deep fore reef slopes. These fishes are ubiquitous in the coral reef biome. Some of them are unrivaled in chromatic splendor.

In this Coral Realm Pictorial Profile we will look at one such group - the genus Chrysiptera.
