I know a large mouth bass needs at least like a 8 ft tank but does a smallmouth need that much room. I was wondering if it could be in a 180 gallon tank

As a minimum, yeah. Depends on the dimensions. I think it would need to be A species only tank, or with a school of bluegill.

I would put 180 at the minimum based on potential size. They are great fish with lots of personality.
