Tank rack.

Hopefully tomorrow I will be taking a ride to Home Depot to buy some 2x4s to build a rack for my 125 gallon as well as a two tiered rack for 2 29 gallon and 2 20 gallon tall tanks I have. I'm thinking of having the 125 gal in the middle with two tanks on each side. 29's on the bottom and 20's on top. I found this design online and I think I will be borrowing it and adapting it to fit my purpose.
Any ideas or past experiences? I will be building this in my basement. I live in Chicago so it gets chilly down there in the winter so I will be insulating the walls around the tank with some cool looking foil faced insulation I've seen.

For a 125 I would beef up the corners and add extra center supports at least

Thanks, I just found another stand design that I think is better. Well... Easier to make any way. Yes besides with they show I plan on adding a couple of 90* angles underneath each corner and adding a set of legs in front and back right in the middle of the tank.
