Eventually this will be a den area (my sanctuary), I just have to start the outlet wiring, but for some reason I'm dragging my feet.

Because i'm not an engineer so I over build just in case, to be on the safe side.

Looks great personally beefed up my 180 stand build similar to yours. Sleep peacefully every night.

Is that a typo error in your thread title? Is that stand for a 180 or an 18000!! Either way it'll hold the weight! Haha. I'm like you though, total overkill, rather safe than sorry.

Definitely, would rather be siting in my den enjoying the tank rather than wondering if the stand will hold up.
