Do any of you have any suggestions on an easy way to support 6 thirty
gallon tanks. I was looking at a web page that showed a simple stand made
from cinder blocks and 2 x 4s and plywood... but it was only 16 inches from
to back... like a cinder block... and held 7 10 gall tanks (so only 70
gallons total, I wanted to mount three thirties side by side so that I was
looking at the ends (not the front/back). But that would obviously be 90
gallons and need to be 36 inches deep (with another row of the same on top).

I could obviously just use more cinder blocks... but if this is going to be
72 inches wide and 36 inches deep, I was wondering if anyone had an idea as
to whether the 2 x 4s would hole the weight... or do you have another idea?
