Default help with DIY racks

I'm wanting to build some racks to hold 2 55 gallon tanks and possibly a row of 10 gallons from measuring I'll have 84 inches total available.

I'm thinking of putting the 4 10's across the bottom 5 inches from the floor. then 5 inches free space, then the next support for the 1st 55
then 10 inches free space, then the next 55 with 13 inches between it and the ceiling.

I'm thinking build the racks to hold the 55's centered on 2x4 rails and either build the bottome shelf out with 2x4s screwed into the others, or a piece of plywood that'll give me the 20inch depth I need for the bottom shelf.

does this make sense or should I just build a totally separate rack for the 10's and give my self more room between the 55's??
