Brian, I think you should set up a small “show tank”. That would give your customers a glimpse of the possibilities they can achieve as well as showcase your expertise in this hobby. Just a thought, cuz I know I’d love to see it!

I wouldn’t mind doing a display tank. It probranly won’t happen for a year or so. We have been working every day since 8/15 on home improvements. First on our current home and now the new one. Since closing 3 weeks ago we have accomplished a lot but lots more to do. Pretty much gutted the entire house. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to start on the coral house build due to the main living area work. I did however get to install the drywall where the dry goods will be located. Here is before and after photo.  The reason why we tore down this wall down is because there was a hallway behind it. It really didn’t serve any purpose  other than a second entrance to the basement into the utility room. I wanted the customer entrance to open right into the showroom. So we removed that wall which Exposed the rear left door and gave us an extra 5 feet. I also had to relocate the door on the right to the back of the room for access to filtration room.

Here is a picture of the family room/ kitchen.  The kitchen was in the back right corner. There were walls between it and the family room that we tore out. There was lots of plumbing, ducting and electrical in those walls to relocate. I had to enlist some help for the electric but we did everything else ourself.

Are those porcelain tile that look like wood, vinyl plank, or real wood floors?  I’m considering the porcelain that looks like wood for a room expansion.
