I had initially gravitated towards a 180P or similar but I think there is just too much logistically to consider (stand, containers, WC etc.) so I decided not to go beyond 100 (baby steps). However I wanted to reach the 6' range that normally comes with 180 or larger tanks so my choice was custom built only (for rimless that is).
Edit: Plus I don't know if I can be as efficient as Tom to fix leaks for that big a tank.
