Well just over 1 year since I started the little 3 gallon nano and it's still up and alive! Pistol shrimp is alive and well, two of the original hairy mushrooms and the big aiptasia guys are still alive as well.the glass also has ton of life. I will get my girlfriend to up load a video to YouTube this evening and I'll post a link.. Let me Know what you think.

unfortunately aiptasia is all too easy to grow... even without light, food and even salter conditions, they will live/grow; if not handled, they will grow to biblical proportions and sting all your other corals and fish. If there is one, there will be more even if you kill it as their cells seem to sprout out new ones in your tank. I advise to get rid of them if you can!! Be warned.
