So it’s been a really long while since I updated the progress of the Switch-A-Roo we’ve been doing between the dining room and the new “fish room.” When last we spoke about the Switch-A-Roo, I had just completed painting the dining room in anticipation of the new fish tank being delivered.
A couple weeks later, the fish tank, all 180 gallons of it, arrived. I was a little shocked by the size of the stand and tank.
My hubby had measured it all out for me to see, but until I actually saw the behemoth, I didn’t really “get it.” Luckily after placing into the room, it didn’t seem quite as overwhelming as it did when it was being carried into the house.
It took a couple weeks for the tank to “cycle,” so we didn’t have any fish or coral in it for a while.
But once they were all acclimated into their new home, it all came together nicely.
The new fish room has turned out to be a wonderful little spot for relaxing – many a nap has been taken and many a glass of wine has been imbibed on the sofa!
The only thing left, I think, is putting some drapes up. Maybe that’ll happen sometime in the next couple years! :^)
Next up…finishing the new dining room. Updates to follow shortly!
