Yes i think thats a good plan. If you feel like ypu need support in the middle you can always add it in later.Ive actually watched alot of King of DIYs (Joey) youtube-channel (not just regarding stand builds) and now I kind of regret not doing it his way from the start. What I really cant get my head around is that in Joeys builds the guides really dont support any weight.
A couple of questions:
1. So the real purpose of the guides is to stop the weight-bearing legs from twisting?
2. If were to redo the build as suggested, King of DIY-style, can/should I do it with 6 legs (with guides) instead of the 12 I have now?
3. If I do rebuild, should I skip the 2x4 in the center of the top-part going the lenght of the stand? (see pic) Just use 2x4 supports for the width of the tank?
