Just a couple clowns, CB shrimp, 6 line wrass and some inverts.... This tank was neglected where I had it. Just upgraded the lights, so now I will be adding corals and more fish.

I did everything.. Had the veneer stone left from a job, and I did the trim as well... which was the hardest part. I am by no means a carpenter I learned. Also you cant tell from the pics, but my floor is also pavers, and my window sills are bullnose pavers!

Nice!! What a sweet place for a tank. Those fish will never feel neglected there.

Can you post a couple more pics of the office? I'm curious how the pavers and bullnose look up against finished interior trim. Thanks.

Sure... I need to clean everything up... Lots of drywall dust and some paint splatter on the pavers (Im very impatient... so why use plastic and tape?)

I'm not worried about a little paint...Others might pick you apart for it.

I'm really curious how a 2 3/8 paver works with the rest of the floor and doors of the house that are built for 3/4."

We built a couple thresholds for the doors. When I turned the garage into an office, there was only the door comming from inside the house to the garage. I added A door to the outside and windows, and a partition wall with a door to the second half of the garage (the wall the tank is in) so both of these door I set the elevations. The pavers were set on 1" foam insulations boards alsao. I thought maybe the pavers would settle into the foam or make a noise but they worked perfectly.
