60+ gallon stands

Does anyone have any links or pictures to wood stands without any vertical center brace? Preferably made of 3/4" plywood, as 2x4" construction is easy to do.

Thanks

What is the length of the tank? By about 4' long the center support becomes quite important. Especially if you are limiting yourself to 2 x 4.

I am no pro, but have constructed a few stands myself for small and large tanks. If you are just using plywood then anything over 3' long would probably be safer with a center brace.
