I used the same exact design as familyreefer did on my 120. It is very solid. However, with the 120 and your tank for that matter, the 2x6 for the tank support will not need to be braced in the center of the back familyreefer's is since it is only 4' long. You can definitely add it if you want, but I don't feel it is necessary for the shorter tanks.

Just a FYI. I am putting a 220 on the stand in the pic. That is why the front is "headered" and there is a brace in the middle on the back.

That thing is a beast!!! Don't have to worry about a collapse with that stand! Thanks for the closeups.

I can never keep up with which web site has requests for which pics so I usually just post all requests to all sites. Can't get too much info can we? I am really looking forward to this build because it will have all the schiznit I have always said, " on the next one I will ...." I am gonna have the RO in a sump in the basement tied to the salt tub. Gonna have a pump in each plumbed to the tank for top offs and water changes. Switches for these pumps will in the stand.. The goal is to do a complete water change with one hand while holding a cold Miller Lite with the other!!
