I did not lay the tile, although I have in the past. I do countertops and backsplashes, no floors. Apparently I'll be spackeling, sanding and painting next week. :thumb:

It's a basement.

Tanks only two high and two wide. They will basically fill in the rest of the wall in the back with a door opening to the access-way behind.

That's going to be a nice space for some tanks. I'd be hard pressed to have just 4!

Oh- come on, where's you sense of adventure?! LOL! :lol: The tile looks good.

Spackeling and painting can be fun, especially since it's your "fish" room. :thumb:

It's looking good so far!
