The brown chromis, Chromis multilineata, a damselfish of the tropical western Atlantic, is a member of the reef community frequenting the water column above regions of rocky outcrops and coral heads in depths of 1.5-40 m. Limited field observations on behavior of this species have provided information for a preliminary comparison with various activities shown by other damselfishes, particularly C. chromis, from the Mediterranean, and C. punctipinnis, from the eastern Pacific. Reproductive behavior is emphasized. Many specific activities were shared by C. multilineata and C. chromis, but where comparison was possible, such similarities were lacking in C. punctipinnis.
