Could the tank be moved up close to the side of the fishtank? How about a piece of semi-sturdy aluminum bent into an "L" to slide one leg under the tank and strap the CO2 tank to the upright part? I say semi-sturdy to avoid having too much thickness to run under the tank.

Powerful kettlebell! Depends on your style. I like the industrialized looked of a steel clamp used to secure conduit or pipe. Can be screwed right to the wall.

I bought some tie-downs in the automotive section of Home Depot to secure my 15# tank. I like the idea of some conduit holders that you can attach to the wall too.
