Yes they will get along if you introduce all of them at the same time. Otherwise they may fight. My favorite is the blue star leopard wrasse

Fantastic tank! Was wondering if you could go into more detail about your plumbing between the tank, sump, and refugium. Planning a 120 and debating a sump that includes a refugium vs. running a refugium separately. Trying to find different ways to plumb a separate refugium that would lead to the least chance of failure.

Congratulations!
I was surprised to see that you only had 10 fish? Did I count correctly?
If so, was this due to maintaining nutrient control?

I have the tank draining into both the refugium and the sump. The refugium drains into the sump and then the return pump pumps from the sump into the tank. I also have a check valve at the outlet of the return to prevent water from flowing back into the sump.

Less fish helps with the stability of the tank. Also the fishes are happy as they have more territory for themselves.

Beautiful tank!

Can you explain more about the calcium reactor you use? I'm getting mixed advice of people saying to use a kalk doser..others say I have to shake the tank holding the shells if I use a Ca reactor. I need something relatively low maintenance. I'm trying to grow SPS but having difficulty keeping them alive. My Ca levels are 380 so I know I need to get it up to 420. Any help is appreciated.
