There's no limit to how you can display Steve's signature steel fish schools. Fish are sold individually and in schools of 7, and are available swimming left or right. Here are several layouts for inspiration. Click on a photo to enlarge the image.
To install 7-Schools in sheetrock
Hold the school up against the wall where you would like to hang it, mark the location of the hangers (where the screws will eventually go) with a pencil
Using only a sheetrock screw with no anchor, put in the front screw, hang the school on that and double check the position of the second mark before putting in the second screw.
To install single fish "spikes" into sheetrock:
Do not push by hand
Using a hammer and a piece of cardboard or padding to protect the finish (do not hammer directly on the metal!)
Tap in the longer spike
Adjust the angle
Tap in the second spike just enough to secure in position
