It's very likely. I was a construction inspector for 20yrs, and one thing I can tell you is that, back then, houses were built a lot better than the crap we build today.... why do you think it's still around after 150yrs.

Getting your landlord to sign off on it may be a whole 'nother issue, though..... especially if he/she lives below you.

The 125 and 180 are the most common/popular 6' tanks. Main difference is the 125 is 18" deep, the 180 is 24" deep. My 220 is 7'x2'x2', really love the depth (front-to-back) more than my 125. The extra 6" makes quite a difference in water flow and stocking options. Bottom line, get the biggest tank you can find/afford, size does matter.
If you do want to build your own a plywood tank with just the front panel of glass is much less expensive all around.

There is a 40g 6 foot tank I kno. You hang it on a wall. It's called a vista aquarium if I recall but it's pricy at $1500
