An engineering buddy asked me about shelf load on my rack as it is only 2x4 construction. I did a little google hunting and came across the site below. Now you can calculate the sag of your DIY project. My rack is 60in x 12in x 72in tall and holds four 29 gallon aquariums. The bottom shelf is 18in from the floor and the next shelf is about 48in from the floor. Top "shelf" holds the power strip and air pump for the tanks.
