Thank @rvt786 but only want a tank and yours to short and to high and wide
Thanks @FrikkieVanDieVrystaat but yours 50mm to long and 50mm to wide.

Ppl i know this is a odd size but i cant change it.
Its for my wall tank again. So stand is already built and on the wall for like 6months already.
Hight isent a real problem. But the length 1600mm and 450mm wide is my size i have to go for.

Otherwise ill have to buy glass and build one myself.
Wanna see if i can do it on a small budget this time.

Only need tank, lights, powerhead and heater then i can start

The only way you going to get such an odd size is to get it made or to make it yourself. You dont have a standard size its going to be very hard for someone to sell a tank to your specific sizes. Maybe work with what someone has and use a cabinet to hide the rest.

Sorry man i never told you about the thikness of the glass.
Im looking at all 10mm. But im not gona have a full 1.6m display, im gona use abour 500mm of the display and put a devider in and use it as a sump cos im building my tank on a wall in the lounch. So no space for a sump.

So that devider wil make it stronger and im also gona put euro bracing at the top of the tank and then maybe in the bottom in the dispay aswell. So thats why 10mm is ok

That is exactly what i want to do, sump on the side. I have a wall that divides my Tv room from lounge and it around 1.5m high. Think it better if a pro builds it.

Why did you build a stand first?
Because thats the size i want. And i cant go wider than 450mm. I always build ny stand first. Then the tank
