Oh - they love each other. They hang out together all the time and I did get one male in the group - he's already paired up with one of the females. They've been doing the "Love Dance" on the top of the water for the last few days. Wonderful to watch them act natural. The Chromis are getting together in one of my big SPS corals - kind of huddling together. They are actually doing it right now - this is so cool!

The thing is, I don't have the Alpha Male Yellow Wrasse with them yet - that will change everything! He's about 10x their size - LOL. Same with the larger female - she's about 5x larger so that is going to be very interesting. That was the reason I put the new smaller four in first - this will give them a change to know what's going on and places to hide - the big guys will be at a disadvantage at first.

Hey Pedro,
Things are coming along. It's so nice to have livestock in it, they are so lively it's incredible. I'm getting the AC3 programmed now and the main problem was location. You only have 10' of wire between units (MAX), that sounds like a lot but for one all the cables they put with the units are 7' and by the time the wires are dressed the few feet you had to run iis gone - LOL. I have most of it finished now - as far as the DC units. I might have to pick up some 10' telephone cords - I'm not one to let my cables just hang loose, but that would make it easier .

I'm hoping Sunday to get a few things done (break down 75g tank) and get some lights on the other tanks. I still have a long ways to go - but fish and corals are in the tank!

I cant believe how much work you did on the entire set up! The whole thing looks great. I just spent the last two and a half hours reading the entire thread. I am impressed, and I will continue to follow the progress and additions.
