I don't completely understand what you've done.  PRODRG uses a single molecule 
to produce a topology that can then be #included in the system topology.  I 
don't know how you inputted 23 molecules and then specified 65.  What does this 

Also note that PRODRG topologies are usually insufficiently accurate for actual 
use in simulations:


The source of the error could be one of several problems, please see:
