Question simple double tank stand plans

i want to make a double tank stand for my 20 gallon long and 10 gallon, but i cant find any instructions on how to do so online. I dont really need anything fancy like cabinents and stuff, just a stand that will stack them and support the wieght.

(ps. i want to stack them, one above the other)

thanks

Cinder blocks and 4x4s. Stack the cinder blocks, cut the 4x4 into two appropriate lengths and slide the boards into the holes in the blocks. One of my LFSs has a wall of tanks held up like this.

I built one for my 30g long and 10g tank. It actually fits a 30g long on top and a 30 tall at the bottom. Link to the plans included:

is there anyway to modify a tank stand like this:
Penn Plax Aquarium Tank Stand 20 Gallon at PETCO
to hold a 10 gallon on the bottom? i meant to build like a 2x4 frame around the bottom support?

you could just put a piece of 3/4 inch plywood on the bottom to hold the 10g tank.
