I need a rack!!!

I am looking for a rack for my shrimp tanks! Right now they sit on a heavy duty "old" wooden tv stand...that I have own for years... I like to see my tank stand front to front instead of end to end.

I research a bit but I really want people who have used the rack and have no problem with them to comment on what to buy...

I don't have the tools or knowledge to build a wooden rack so don't ask me.

I am looking at those rack shelve sold at home depot, menards, and sam's club..

I am interest in one that will hold a 10g, 3 x 2.5g... I prefer a 3 shelves system and I don't want those that have the wire shelve....needs to be solid.

since you dont have many tanks you could get away with smaller width rack.
something like this from costco, its only 48" wide by 22" deep.

I have something similar for my racks

if you look for something similar elsewhere make sure you find ones that the vertical leg is one piece top to bottom.
I know there are ones out there that you stack.
