Wassup folks just feeling a little happy today that its friday, and also that i wanted to share this great news because i know not everyone finds a whole 90 gallon bowfront reef ready with sump skimmer, rocks,scrubber,lights, powerheads plumbing, all the filtration that its needed to start. well i was walking my dog last night and passed by the compactor room of my building and found the whole set up waiting for it to be trashed. my reaction to seeing the set up at first was priceless. i felt like i just hit the lotto, but in hopes that the tank is not cracked nor the sump or equipment. So the first thing i did was take the sump because it was the easiest to carry, the first i made sure i put it inside the tub because there was still sand and nasty ol sump water, cleaned it up with a nice vinegar bath and scrubbed the skimmer, sump, pump, and UV. it took me about 2 hrs to clean it all up. after i was done cleaning it i went down to get the second part(The tank and all rocks inside it), the down part of this story is that when i went to get the tank the door was locked for the night and i wasn't able to get the tank, i am really really hoping that by the time i get back from work today the tank is still there and not get tampered with.

i attached the before and after pics of the sump with all the equipment.


BTW i currently own a 20g AIO.



Update 5/3/2016: I was so motivated after finding these gems and not getting the tank that i decided to look for one, once again i hit the jack pot. for 400$ bucks i got a 65gal 28" tall with canopy, sump, skimmer, heater, pump, plumbing, everything needed to just start a tank, the seller gave me all of his live sand 90lbs. so on sunday i went early to pick it up from the seller, 1hr away, and by the end of sunday the whole set up was water tested and completed.
