It's sitting at 5. Been there since last night. So 1 more big water change should take it down the rest of the way.

Honestly this is probably a good idea... Start over right, do the little things you found you wanted done over the past month and just start over. I would IMO.
On the plus side glad, to hear your trates came down

So a pre-drilled 180? Or a shorter tank?

You could prob go custom and go tall. If you went acrylic or thicker glass. I had a custom built with all the perks I wanted and it is well worth it. With the custom stand and canopy to go with it, all a done deal was around 400 for around 75 gallons. It's a 3 foot platform but deep and tall.

Yea. I've looked into building an acrylic tank but a 6ft sheet of acrylic is very expensive. The same for thick enough glass. I looked into the glass when the back glass on my first 120 got broke. For $200 more I bought a brand new tank
