I have an ocellaris and a green chromis in a tank together. They seem to swim with each other all the time. Is it common for fish of different species to school together?

Not as a general rule. Sounds like they're confused! Wink

Green Chromis are schooling fish by nature. If they're the only individual of their species in the tank, they'll normally try to associate with another fish in order to feel safe. I only have one Green Chromis in my tank and it likes to stick close to my Dispar Anthias. It's just what they do.

That makes sense. The chromis is always following the clown fish.
