There is not a whole lot of difference by the time you have got everything to start building the tank.
Please make sure that you have someone look at where the tank is going and make sure the area is structurally sound to take the weight of the tank. A 150g will weigh in excess of 1800lbs when filled with water.
Make it 72"x24"x25" and you have a standard 180g tank.
i agree with him.but i dont think the glass you ordered is thick enough for a 180 maybe a 150.but i am basing this off the glass on my 150.the glass on my 150 is 5/8 thick.thats bigger than ur 1/2 and my tank still bows a bit.id stick to a wide 150 gallon .well good luck tho.
