My Diy tank

This is my 70 gallon tank! I have built the tank and stand. Just waiting on next pay check to start on lights. The sand is from Destin beach, Florida!! I live in Texas so its kind of sentimental!

I can't tell from the angle but does it have a brace? If not does it have allot of flex when filled with water?
