The shelf looks fine as is to hold the 5 gallon. Just make sure you attach it to the wall some how so it doesn't tilt forward and come crashing down if you bump into it.

It means that later on , if you move the bookshelf , you can fill the holes in the dry wall with spackle (putty) . Spackle is a product used to make small repairs of holes and cracks in dry wall .
