Its been up for ten days as of now. The original stand for this thank was built in a similar manner but with less sturdy joints. It lasted for a good 30 years or so.
Plywood is actually quite strong on end. Just take a look inside any commercially build stand. No 2x4's to be found.
The tank, water and everything in it probably weighs just shy of six hundred pounds. We had about 650 pounds of people jumping on it and it was just fine.
