Double Tank Stand 125 Gallon


I planning on building a rack to house a 125 on one shelf .and a 40 gallon breeder and 50 gallon on the other shelf. I am unsure if I should put the 125 on the bottom or top rack. This would be a wood stand using 2x4's and 2x6's. I'll probably use the typical design for building a diy wood stand.

I would put the biggest tank on the top.You will probably have a vertical support in the middle.This will not allow you to put the 125 on the bottom rack.

This guy built double tank racks for 120s, 180s, and 240s for full span without center supports. He quit posting videos after a couple of years, but the stands were doing ok at that point.
