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

removed on me.

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

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.
