The Great Fish Tank Rescue!

Well today I had to rescue the 55 Gallon SW Tank at my school. It was overgrown with cyanobacteria!
It looked horrible and didn't smell any better than it looked.
So since I'm on break and that I have the keys to my school I spent the whole day cleaning and "pimpin" this tank!

This is what it looked like before


The "sand"


The HOB Filter (Hasn't been cleaned in months)


The fish that were rescued
Two damsels and a Coral Beauty Angel

Final product as of now only has one 7 pound live rock, and some reef rock and a T-5 light
I will be adding more to this tank as time goes by

Thanks everyone! Went to check on it today and it cleared up pretty nice
I'm still waiting on getting an Actinic Bulb to join the white one
In other news the Coral Beauty is doing great in my 125. She is enjoying having a ton of live rock to graze on
