Was hoping I could borrow/rent a fellow reefer’s 100g+ Rubbermaid trough for a weekend? 
Wife has fallen in like with hobby now and we were fell into an upgrade. 
if this the wrong forum I apologize

Working with a specialist to replace top frame and center brace, wasn’t any visible bowing but the center brace detached during leak test and I stupidly didn’t level tank before doing that…
 
anyways, replacing top and bottom frame to alleviate doubt, that’s going to take 6-10 weeks to get in.
 
project is firmly on hold

Well, now upgrading to a 210. Wasn’t able to find trim I needed so bought a new tank instead. This new one is pre drilled as well so at least I’m starting off in better shape 
 
more details coming

Tank is installed, filled up and fish are happy… did have two casualties from the move but that is to be expected.
 
major thank you to the great people at Glass Aquatics, helped make this as stress free as possible (and for putting up with my anxiousness)
 
will have pics soon, creating an entire album for this change over.
