what's plum? as for the question of how to set it up...
what you see if going to hold 2 60s and 2 20s. one 60 will be on the floor and the other will go in the middle. the 2 20s will be on top. then i'm going to have another stand come off of it on the side. on that side i'm planning to put a 30 gallon on top and then 20s in the middle and bottom. i might end up buying 2 more 30s and put them in the middle and bottom but depends on how my filters will fit for the 2 60s. since the 20s and 30s will be small fish/shrimp only i'm planning on buying one big pump and have all of them run on sponge filters. 1 for every 20 gallon and 2 for every 30 gallon.
the support that is already there is there for the 60 gallon tank. i dind't need it but wanted some extra comfort. i sat on it and tried bouncing on it and it didnt' move so i'm pretty sure it's sturdy since i'm over 220 lbs. the support for the top shelf makes me a bit worried so i'm planning on putting anohter plank of wood in the middle of the whole thing so there will be 3 peices of wood as opposed to just two.i plan on finishing this side up and setting up the tanks before i start on the extra "wing" because the family wants my tanks out of the living room :p
gonna paint it a greyish green tomorrow night (after work and after the laker game) then buy some colorquartz and wash it and let it sit for a day. then start breaking down my tank and put everything together on sunday hopefully.
don't worry u'll be seeing it in all its glory soon. i just hope it looks half as good as it looks in my head and half as efficient as it does in my head.
