So I have a good direction of where I want to go with my enclosure now, thanks to everyone here. I want to tile the walls and floor and also grout them (personal preference). What is the safest kind of grout to use, and do you have to seal the grout? If so, what kind of sealant do I use?
Thanks,
.ks.

I would not grout it - you wont be able to pull those tiles for a good cleaning --- you can leave loose and use a thick shop paper towel under the tile to catch the urate / watery poop etc........... some on here have grouted and glued and regretted doing that --- just fyi--- cut tile to fit the tank and lay them in there

Hmm... that is definitely an idea! I’m wanting to tile the walls, though, too. Any suggestions?

Bathroom tile maybe - not sure on that one ---- I have Bamboo sides and backing - look on the DIY board - I dont think I have seen anyone tile the sides and back
