not bad my friend,but a 180 gallon tank weighs around 1500 lbs maybe how did you reinforce your stand for that much weight,it looks a little light for the load,i live in socal and when things start shaking the last thing you want is a 180 gallons crashing to the floor.the look though is fantastic bro,nice job.

Nice cabinet and the tank looks like it’s doing well, especially the monti. I have the same unfortunate affliction :O 200g with fish room.

Thank you everyone. And to answer the question about the weight the inside of the stand is framed like a house, this stand would hold more weight then any off the shelf cabinet! Beautiful tank Bill!

Nice job!
That stand is solid, the roof could cave in and that thing would still be standing. Manufactured stands are made of pine or 3/4 plywood with a particle board core and they hold the weight.
