Carpet gone - Tile Floor Complete

RVA Tile and Stone did a great job. Nice to have a floor guy who is a reefer. Floor where the tank goes is now perfectly level. Will not need shims like the old tank.

I'm looking forward to seeing this. I've been interested in Custom Aquariums tanks myself, but have been waiting to see someone who has one... Thanks for being the "Guinea Pig" :D Be sure and let us know what kind of build quality it has.

Added 2 center supports in the back.
One extra front rail since the front will not have a center support.
Three top center supports.

Now I need to decide to paint or stain the inside. Outside is going to be stained.
