Wire shelving for 10 gallon tanks?

Hey everyone,

I'm thinking about purchasing one of these wire shelving units from Home Depot today: Perfect Home 24 in. W x 30 in. H x 14 in. D Decorative Wire Zinc Finish Commercial Shelving Unit-3T25142430Z at The Home Depot

It says each shelf can hold 250 pounds, but I wanted to see what yall's opinions are on wire shelving for aquariums. Each shelf would only have one 10 gallon tank on it, which I know even filled is still significantly less than 250 pounds. I just don't know how the individual wires would hold up.

It's really nice that this unit is only 20 bucks and I'd prefer not to spend more than 30. Thank you!

This looks like it will work fine. Three 10 gallons should fit fine and well under half the weight limit.
