okay in other news, decided to try some Chromis again, bought 2 of them and drip acclimated them for about an hour/hour half. they both are swimming around together looking good so far.

On another note, i got my other light in the mail today, everything works except the white light DOESN'T DIM! ughhh waiting to hear back from the seller.

I hope your chromis do good, mine only lasted a couple days. Drip acclimation is best, hopefully they'll hold up.

sorry to hear about your light, hopefully like bearchumjs said, they'll replace it im sure.

Yeah I'm not worried about it getting replaced, there's definitely a warranty on the sellers auction page. I just hate that I have to wait even longer now lol

I would suggest (since its down the line) going with a Mystery Wrasse. I love mine. One of the most beautiful fish I've ever had.

Yeah, that's about what I payed. They are a "save up your money" fish but, IMO, they are well worth it. Just can't beat the color, markings, and motion.

I just almost bought a Christmas wrasse for my tank last week. I talked with the guys at the store and they steered me after from it and toward a solar fairy wrasse. The said that the Christmas is a more aggressive and if you wanted to add other wrasses later it could be an issue. They said that the fairy wrasses (Cirrhilabrus spp.) are a much more forgiving group and tend to do better if you decide to add more wrasses later. I totally agree though that the Christmas is pretty awesome looking. Check out the elegant fairy wrasse though. They are sweet.

Yeah I keep getting mixed feelings on these Xmas wrasses. Some say reef safe, others day they're not.. so who knows. I'll look into other ones as well thanks for your input!
