A friend of mine has a 55Gallon on what looks exactly like that. IMO it will suffice.

Yeah, w/3 2x4s on each corner, you will have no issues. In fact if anything, its a bit of overkill. I've got a 65gal sitting on nothing but 3/4" plywood and 120 tanks sitting on two at each corner, so you're good to go.

The stand was serious overkill, but, you did a nice job finishing it off.

Put trim up today but I really don't like it, tearing it off and getting a nicer crown molding type. Any ideas for rounded corners? I have a 2 yr old...

Looks great to me... You could use a jigsaw to round the sharp corners for safety or pad them with high density foam. That way when the baby is bigger, remove the foam.
