It is very easy to make a stand! I made a freestanding one for 6 20gallon long tanks for 70 bucks and 3 hrs (with two people)
this is what you can do
bottom- 3 cinderblocks, evenly spaced as wide as you want the stand to be (If i did this over I would raise the bottom shelf up more by stacking the bottom layer of cinderblock 2 high, not one) then lay 3 2x4s across the blocks. The cindeblocks should be so that the hollow part make shelves, not a tube in the center ( if you look at a cinderblock you will know what I mean
then stack 3 cinder blocks on each end, and lay more 2x4s, and DONE!
IF you want it to look good ( i didnt) then you can paint everything black, or put fabric around the cinderblocks to hide them. it looks fine as is though!
if you need mroe info just pm me
