Work in progress. Got a great deal on a 90 gallon tank (48" x 18" x 21"). I built the stand out of 2"x4" pine. I'm gonna build doors and close it in when I get some free time. I built the stand 36" high, great for viewing and I can still get my arm in the tank. I know the rock work is a mess, I'll fix it up when I get more time. I transferred everything over from my 55 gal. and didn't want the rocks to dry up so I just placed them in for now.

Is the stand resistant to lateral movement or scissoring?

I don't know much about construction, but it looks like a healthy bump from the right or left could cause some sway.

Trust me, you could park a car on it. I morticed/overlapped all the butt ends. Glued and screwed.

Looks good. If you wan your fish to use more of the height in the tank, get some larger rocks to lay out on the bottom so you can make taller piles. The fish generally only swim to the level of the highest rocks. Just a thought
