Would this work?

I was thinking of placing a 180 gal tank with a custom built stand in the middle of my living room/dining room

i life on a second floor apartment, the building was just completely renovated...i wanted to place the tank as a divider between my dining area and my living room...was going to build a custom stand that would house 2 Fluval 404s and 2 heaters on the sides as to not be seen

the tank would have 1-2" on each side that would be covered by the cabinet so you wouldnt even see the inlet tube, output nozzle, or the heater

forgive the crude pic...

what do you all think? would i have issues with weight...the entire setup would span 7 feet so it would be sitting over a few support beams...this thing would easily weigh a ton though, litterally...

Sorry to say it, but you will probably have issues with the weight of the tank. That is a very heavy tank to be putting on the second floor without being against any walls.
