I've used one of these (http://www.amazon.com/Special-Machine-Tool-CG-1-Stripper/dp/B00002N9E2) on the end of a drill to knock the softer parts out of semi rotted wood. Gave it a texture that...

The load from an aquarium like a 55gal is mainly at the corners. So the cinderblocks take the load directly down from the 2X4 in the nat. zoo case. As someone else already pointed out, these tanks...

I front of the fireplace? The fireplace will be on a good foundation. If you're lucky the hearth will be integral with the fireplace and be on the same foundation. Set the rack on that and you're...

Sounds like your structure is good on the rack itself. In your drawing you do have 2X4's supporting the shelves. The cross pieces will help.

I'd be concerned about the backs of the 55's resting in the middle of the plywood shelves. You don't want any flex there. Maybe put another 2X4 supporting the shelves in that area with a "light...
