Just built this 2 tank stand for qt and hospital tanks. There is no cross brace in the back, didn't think I would need one. Putting a 20gal on top and a 10 or 20 on the bottom. Inside legs/braces are 2x4's the rest is made of 1 1/2 x 3 1/2 poplar which is a hard wood so should hold up. Would like some feedback on if you think stand will be fine without a cross brace in back. I can put all my weight on it and it doesn't move a inch

Jr;

...some overall dimensions would have been good, but from 20g stated in text, I would estimate the width to be about 30" (to fit 20g wide?), and from description of lumber used, I would say: plenty strong (unless you're in earthquake country, in which case I would recommend you move)!

Cheers

It looks plenty strong, especially if the wood was also glued together with a glue such as tight bond and clamped. That is a VERY nice looking stand. Much nicer that what I could build!
