I am in the process of doing a very similar build on my 7.5 cube. The last piece I am missing is a good light. Definitely interested on your thoughts about the aquasky knockoff when you get it setup.

I would say that it depends on how long the tank was sitting "without" water in it. If they emptied it before you got there, I think you could probably make it work with the bacteria in the canister....

I'm really liking the way you think. This is the exact setup I would do with a 12 long, right down to the wood choice on the stand. Looking forward to seeing this project progress.

+1 on the congos. I kept a small group in my 40 breeder and have also seen some 6 foot tanks with larger schools. Proportionally they are a greater size for the 180.

I'd suggest outflow. I imagine that CO2 could build up in the filter if you put it on the intake side. Some people think you get better diffusion when putting it on the intake but it worries me.
