How tall is your tank w/stand & canopy?

Building my own stand & canopy for 150gl and what I've got is about 7'6" tall with stand, tank, and canopy. I'm wondering if this will be to tall and have risk of tipping over! Just wondering what heights others are at?

If nothing jumps in it it won't tip. Tank height depends on personal preference. My tank if off the ground 3 ft and I wish it was higher. I like it at eye level more then a little lower.

I thought it would be safe, someone brought it up to me while talking about it so I thought I'd ask.

Right now my plan is for 40" stand with drawers however I may loose a few inches to add a few to the canopy because after the construction I don't think the doors on the canopy will be big enough To comfortably reach in the tank. Lol I keep changing things and I'm sure ill continue to chant things as I build it!

Here's how the door open. I made them this way so I had full open span.
