Dimming PC's and Dimming

Does anyone know if you can dim PC's or Halides?
I know you can dim VHO's but I don't want to retrofit again.

Any help would be great!

Should I buy another one, or just wait and see if he shows up? ...

ANY tank/captive raised/bred wrasses?

I have grown to love wrasses.

They are awesome fish.

I would like to purchase a few, but not if they're yanked from the ocean.
