Looking to build a new stand, currently have only built one myself for a little 30L cube, it’s fine but it’s tall so it can wobble if I try.

I also have a 120L tank which has 2 musk turtles in on a separate cabinet.

I’m quite confident in building a stand for both, but just have a few concerns, one being would there be any issue with let’s say the stand is 5 foot in length, 3 foot of that would be the turtle tank, and then on the far end there only being a 30L cube, I’m sure it’ll be fine.

I’d like to go for maybe 6 feet in length, with two extra supports in the centre, so 4 including the sides 1.5 feet apart.

Any input in building large stands would be appreciated.

If you are going for functional, instead of pretty.. Then I'd just do cinder blocks with 2 by 4s on top. 3 sets of blocks, to desired height. all depends on your front to back dimension. at 6 feet long I'd have a column of cinder blocks in center as well as on each end. I currently have a 75 gallon, 2 55s with this set up on each. The 55s only have a cinder block column at each end. The 75 has a center support.
