Your going to need to reinforce that some for sure. A 55g is 500 lbs with just water.

I changed my mind. It will be 2 tanks on it. One - 30 and second - 15 gal. Is that changing anything?

Still 45 gallons going to be close to the same amount of weight. I would highly reccomend strengthening the structure or it might fail on you. Just my opinion.
