Well here it is. I picked this bad boi up for a whopping $25! Had calcium all over so needed a good scrub. Bought a nice entertainment center, restructured it a little to make sure it can hold weight and custom made light hanger built from local reefer.

Looking good!

How long has this tank been running?

Thank you! About a week :D I transferred the living stuff from my 20g I had setup. A lot of the rock has been with me for 4-5 years and most the coral I bought in Feb-April this year. 

The fish and inverts are new though. The coral and rock I have had besides a couple pieces I bought for the build. All equipment and everything else for the build is new or solid gear I have used like my heater and light.

Closest I can get to getting what the Black Widow Nem looks like color wise. Probably not as purple (not my best editing)

Looking good man! How are you liking that Nero 5?

Bar far my favorite pump I've owned. I've had koralia, jaebo, Tunze, current USA, mp10s, you name it. The nero for the price of $250 is an amazing pump. Will totally buy another one when I upgrade. I don't really care bout the one little wire.
