Looks nice.
Question: why would you not put a 3rd door in the middle? Kind of awkward to store/retrieve from that area.

Looks good. You going to go with a classic stained look or a black stain? Last time I built one I used four coats of Minwax Polyshades black gloss but a tank with wood-colored trim looks pretty slick with a more natural look. Did you have a hard time finding straight lumber for the long pieces? I built a smaller stand with a similar design for a 55 (without that nice exterior paneling job you've installed though) and had a heck of a time finding straight two-by's.

I'd hit the edges with a router! But it looks good. Definitely going to hold your tank, your neighbor's tank, my tank, your car, etc etc haha. Solid!

Just a post build FYI, the doors may have looked slightly better if you had made the 3 gaps even instead of having the center gap be so large. That's what I did with my 2 doors.
