lol, it seems I overlooked the most important thing.
If you were using the shelves I am thinking off. ie all material is steel 90deg angle (L)
There is no way possible you will be able to put the tanks into it.
I'll get back to my original design.

For what it's worth, I now found out that the sales associate I spoke to at Wearing Williams misunderstood what I was asking about... and it turns out that the "EZ-Rect" Shelving does not stop at a maximum of six foot high corner posts. In fact, it appears quite modular in design. What the heck was this guy talking about?

To those who send me private message asking "How's the stand coming" and such forth, I've decided to hold off for now.

Long term, I may still sell the 150-gallon that is in the space where the "rack" was going to go, but if I do any more aquairum related stuff, I was thinking I would like to get a 72", 135-gallon, to go along a side wall instead.

On a side note... I actually DECREASED the amount of Tropheus I am keeping, one colony is gone (the Kiriza) so no need to press ahead for now. Also, trying to pay down some other debt before I worry about a new aquarium.

Thanks for all the feedback nonetheless.

When and if you do start your project, may I suggest more than 9" of free space between the bottom and top tank?? I own a similar set up and believe me that is not enough elbow room for maintenace.

Especially if you find yourself in the position of having to net something, by the time you get it caught, the net handle will have to be manipulated out of that space and it is indeed frustrating, more often than not , losing the fish in the process! Anyway that's been my experience

I don't think the rack will work in the space anyway, as I was saying previously 9" would be about the maximum clearance, if I want it to be a "rack" (two or more rows high of tanks) at all. There is a bulkhead over the space I wanted to put it in and I cannot modify that bulkhead or HVAC and structural reasons.
