I did some searching, didn't come up with much.

I'm looking for tank rack ideas. I want to build a rack to house two 55s and a 40 long. All tanks have the same foot print, 48 1/4 x 12 3/4. I did find a few dual 55 stands, but I want to go three high to maximize on floor space.

One thing I learned from reading about tank racks is securing them to the wall to ensure they don't tip over. I had not thought about this, but it makes perfect sense. Any other tips or suggestions?

The only thing I would add is that if you wanted to avoid a wall mount, you could put them on a "A" frame type of support... Would pontentially shorten the overall height as well. The negative would be that the support legs would have a larger footprint & stick out further into the floor...
