Yes the tank is still up & running!
I added many rics to the tank I love these things I have some zoas peanut-butter cups, incredible hulks/green crossetts & a few radioactive dragon eyes with 2 blow pop polyps I thought they were regular dragon eye polyps but I am now convinced that they are blow-pops they look similar to regular dragon eyes. I also have a tiny frag of green star polyps I just added. Hoping to get it to spread in the upper left corner. The shrooms are doing well. I upgraded my lighting to led a ecoxotic rgb module with mounting brackets it fits perfectly for the tank. I LOVE being able to change the colors some times I add a little purple or blue or let it cycle colors the colors you can see in the corals are amazing & the red mode lets me watch at night without disturbing anything! I'm not getting a lot of growth with my zoas yet but they are not shrinking & are fully opening & appear healthy I did have a bout with the dreaded zoa eating nudi in the tank when I first got them I never saw the nudi when it was in qt for a week. Must have been an egg. They have all recovered. Perhaps soon I can see some growth.
My little rescue black clown-fish is still going strong & so is the evil hermit that keeps pulling over my rics...he may have to go back to my big cube perhaps a small shrimp to replace him?
I had a little accident with the tank during a water change I dinged the lip with the cup I was using to scoop out water with. thankfully it was a clam-shell chip & not a crack so no runs but I have an extra identical tank in storage if it becomes a problem I blacked out the rim & the bottom to hide the chip at the top it's a nice effect. I was careful not to paint over the seams. It's been ok for a few weeks so it should be fine as clamshells don't usually run I will try to get some pics soon I have been super busy lately.

My camera can not capture many of the colors of my leds & struggles when it cycles through the deep red looks roseish & the yellow is hardly visible. It can not do justice to the colors of the corals. The greens are incredible in person they actually ARE highlighter/neon green & appear to glow the orange/yellow & turquoise on the rics looks very washed out. The kenya tree coral is actually more like 2 times the size it is in the video I ha cleaned the glass a bit a few min ago & it shrunk up along with a few other things. I will try to get a pic later when things are more open.
Oh gosh I just discovered that when I hit the power button for my tv it sends my panorama rgb into these horrific strobe like flashes of changing color. It's actually one of the settings a stupid one but one of the settings anyway. Apparently many of my other buttons likewise correspond to many of this lights functions. Its rather irritating when I try & watch tv....But good to know that if I ever loose the remote I can decipher what buttons do what on my tv remote & use it for my tank light.
update:! tank still going strong. new vid of tank I don't think anyone is still interested in this thread but I'm posting this anyway! Hope the vid shows up. vid still not doing justice to the colors can't seem to get a good color balance with my camera
