Black Bar Squirrelfish
Can I keep 2 Black bar Squirrelfish with my 2 percula clownfish? If I buy them small? What about with Blue Chromis (Chromis cyanea)?

1.) what size tank are you keeping?
2.) I'm assuming you already have the Blue Chromis as well as the Clowns?
3.) how big are the chromis? They can get a bit territorial towards more meek species like the Blackbar; but if the Chromis are really small (1" or so), you should be absolutely fine.
Know that the Blackbar and the Blue Chomis eat pretty much the same diet, but as in almost all squirrel/soldierfish, the Blackbar will be more noctourrnal(hence the oversized eyes), so to get it to eat the best you can, I suggest feeding at night in dimmed lighting or with the tank lights off
