Multi-tank stands

My 75 gallon stand will supposedly hold another tank of that size on the bottom of it. And the top of the stand is kinda arched so it looks like it might fit in there.

I'm starting to have MTS... So I'm considering doing that. Or maybe putting a 40 breeder down there. Would that work okay? considering it's also 18 inches in width. Would it have enough support?

I've got a 40B under my 75 and it's too tight to work on comfortably. Find a shorter tank.

Ditto: Consider the height of the tank, and how much room there will be to work under there. I have a hard time if the space is less than a foot of clearance. Not so much getting my hands in there (though that is a factor) but I use HOB filters on a lot of tanks, and I cannot get the body of the filter out if the space is too small. Granted, it does not have to be done often, but if the impeller quits, or it needs more thorough cleaning than just cleaning the media, then the filter dumps the dirty water into the tank on its way out.

Really? There's a huge space underneath my 75 gallon. I'd have a lot of room.

My 75 is on a welded angle iron stand. Standard height. The 40 is below it. It is so hard to work on I drained it and will put it on its own stand.
