diy stand

so i plan to build a diy stand next weekend for my 29 gallon glass aquarium, and a 10 gallon sump/refugium on the bottom. im trying to keep it really simple. i dont plan to use any side panels.

i had a few questions i was hoping yall could help with.

1) do i want to use pressure treated 2x4 or not?

2) can i just use 4 2x4 for the legs? or should there be more suports

3) does any one have any links of 29 gal stands they built?

Here is the link for the instructions I used for the stand for my 180 gallon tank. You can use 1x4s if you follow this plan.
