Triple tank rack


Hi all,
Does anyone here use a rack to hold three rows of tanks? Would like to see picks and make if you do. I'm considering upgrading tanks with limited space options

Thx

check my old thread if it helps. This definitely crosses NYC-er hobbyists minds all the times

I do, but I can't get far enough back to take a picture.
2x6 uprights. With glued and bolted 2x4 shelf supports.

Shelves are 2x4 boxes with 1/2 inch plywood for the surface the tanks sit on. That way I can put tanks any which way. The shelf boxes sit on the 2x4 shelf supports.
The lowest shelf is 12.5 inches off the floor so I can siphon reasonably well. I use only 12" tall tanks. The middle and bottom shelves were built for five 10g tanks, narrow side out. Top shelf is one 20L and one 15g.

Power filters are on the back of the middle row of tanks, and front of the bottom tanks.
