all side panels (include top) are 1/2" thick, but bottom is 3/4.
Gotcha. Should be okay then. Shouldn't have to keep any more of an eye on it than a typical acrylic owner.... got any pics?

Niiiice! Sounds like a sweet mancave to me!!! I'm not a big drinker at all though... not anymore...

Sound like you have it in the right order! lol Get the tank all situated that way if an issues arises, then you're not tearing up your craftsmanship in any way.

Now I need a group of Ilangis for this tank. How many you guys think is good for 180g???
I like to pick them up locally..2-3 hours driving is not a problem. I am couple hours South of Chicago area.
I am going to O'Here airport this Sat. Hope someone could hit me up with a group of Ilangis..

I thought about that. I did that in my 120g saltwater sits in my master room. Since no bedroom down there and full basement, I would love to hear some noise when I am down there by myself. Seriously, I am scare of ghost. LOL
