I don't think there is anything I could have done to prevent it. The breaker tripped in the middle of the night Tuesday, according to my p4. So maybe having my p4 on a separate breaker system than the life support system of the tank... But I've been running it for 3 years this way an never had any issues. Beats me.
I reevaluated everything this morning, and it is a total loss. Things that had color yesterday are dead or dying. The handful of things I have that might make it, I'm going to take to the LFS.
Time for a reboot I guess. We have been planning on moving to Northern Ohio, but finally put the kabash on that this week (prior to tank death). We are going to stay in Cincy and remodel this house. Plans include a fish room and a 72x32x20 display on the main floor... so in case of power outage, and I am away, my family might notice the tank being dead before it starts to stink.
P4 on separate breaker
Buy power outage sms module for P4
As Arnold says...I'll be back!

Tank is doing pretty good! A few slight ups and downs. I lost the small green brain, my pistol shrimp dropped my space invader pectina on it. However the larger brain and rescue scoly are doing better, we'll the scoly is doing phenomenal. I also added another nice brain to the tank, but my damn tangs were picking at it. Now it's only slightly because I have a gourmet nori feeder to keep them distracted. Added some zoas, frogspawn, a new hammer. Super excited to have been able to acquire a WWC OG bounce mushroom and a walt disney frag. I also made way too many frags so if anyone is interested hit me up haha here's what I have fragged, I have others just not ready.
Oh and not to mention I may have 2 different types of unknown bounce mushrooms I'm just waiting to see if the bubbles keep growing or go away. Fingers crossed haha

Dahhhhh and you are local!!! I appreciate that, but similarly I feel like all I do is cut back and toss pieces of Monti out due to shading.
I would definitely entertain trading other SPS if you are. Be cool to take a couple tank tours. My last Columbus reef buddy took his tank down last year when his family grew.

Throw a Nemo, Dory, and a Seahorse in there and your golden! LOL
I think the same thing when I go and visit aquariums like Newport. Most of the Reef displays are just plain ugly. The beginner reef keeper can have a more beautiful reef tank than what I see in the large aquariums. People pay $40+ a head to get in and see a green mushroom covered rock and two clown fish swimming around a nem. I guess they are more there to see the sharks and rays, but still the public education on living reefs is just not there.

I was flying through Austin, TX and as I was waiting to board the plane I look over and see this fine piece of digital reef tank artwork.
It kills me to see this being displayed and advertised as a beautiful aquarium piece. The first thing I notice is the aptasia infestation! I mean I have aptasia, but this tank has more aptasia than coral! Anyway... If someone paid for this, maybe I can start a business selling aquarium photography too!

Sorry for the slow response. my spam folder was getting all these notifications.
I am selling this because I have no coral and have no plans to get corals again for a while. My fish are just way to big and dirty the tank to allow corals to grow.
There is a Facebook group that helps each other with any issues that may come up and Bill is there as well. the setup is easy and he has a video out on how to do it.

Long time, no update. Been a pretty hectic year. Bought my first home, closed back in April, had the joy of moving the tank in June, and this is how things are looking today.
If any wants a massive piece of Hollywood stunner chalice, it's all yours. It has outgrown my tank and I would prefer to rehome it possible.

Been awhile since I’ve been on here, but the tank is still going. Just finished up moving it for the 9th time in 2.5 years earlier this week. Back in January I got tank of the month on nanoreef.com so feel free to check that out if you’re into that kind of stuff (https://www.nano-reef.com/featured/2021/bearthesquares-10gal-im-nuvo-fusion-nano-reef/)
Here’s some new pictures of the tank after the move:
