My Aquarium

I didn't want the aquarium to be sitting on the carpet. Splashing saltwater aside, the aquarium can ruin your carpet so many other ways. I decided I would lay tile down from my entryway and incorporate it into the aquarium pad. Having never done tile work, it was time to call in my father.

The first step was to cut the carpet out of where the aquarium was to go. I also had to remove linoleum from the front doorway at the same time. You can also see in the above photo where I had to cut into my wall to redo the water and sewer lines my builder removed on me.

A longer view with my home entrance at my back as I captured the photo.

Getting the tiles laid into place was easier than it seemed. Before long I had a new entrance way that welcomed guests into my home and flowed into the aquarium. As soon as the tile cement and grout had a chance to dry it was time to move in the stand and aquarium. I've been waiting for that for a very long time. Continue on the journey as I gather friends to help me lift the beast of a stand and the accompanying glass box into my home.
