I have just bought a 180 gal tank ( about 72/26/26) to use in my retail store. I am actually having a local cabinet builder build it into the check out counter area. He has built a few before but none to this magnitude and I have not owned a fish tank for over 10 years. If anyone wants to give us any advice that would be awesome. The tank I bought came with lights and a filter system but I am curious to findout if there are newer ones out there that aren't so big. The filters hang over the edge of the tank and our rather tall the deep. I believe the lights are kind of bulky as well. We are mostly concerned with issues of heat and ventilation because he is going to eclose the entire tank, but have a hinged hood for cleaning. He also wants to think of different materials to make the top with so that the water can not affect it so much. I will gladly take advice on stocking the tank as well.

Any help will be greatly appreciated
