    Thanks! Im really looking forward to this tank, I still need to leak test it. But I want to stain it then leak test it. One question, would you add a pad under the tank?

    Yeah it doesn't hurt to have one, Home Depot has the cheap neoprene pads that u can roll out and cut with scissors, or you could do a foam pad. Also that was a good choice of beer.

    Rimmed tanks do not usually require pads. I do not have one under mine

    The 180G is holding water just fine. I wiped it down a little and noticed this tiny thing in the Plastic. What do you guys think? The Glass itself is fine

    I think you could jb weld the brace. I'm not an expert though. Is the glass is fine I don't think it will cause you an issue
