how can i build cabinet for 72x30x18 & 72x30x18 to hold both tanks and external filters and hood for lights

hi there picking up two tanks on tuesday sizes are Length x Width x Depth in inches 77x17x18 & 72x30x18 and picking up at the same time will be breeze blocks and stake posts plus got to make a lid or hood for the top tank ie 77x17x18
to hold both tanks and external filters
the way that he has it set up pics below he had one tank then a 5ft tank underneath and the other tank other side of the room in the pics below
plus we have two kids under 2years old and got to be self for them

talked to couple mates abt the set up not sure on how to go abt it could use the breeze blocks and then for self for the kids put doors on it wld like to hide the external filters and pumps and all that
the space its going in is 8ft 3 ins long on the back wall the door into th front room is on one of the side walls and the window is on the other wall it be going where we had my rena 6ft 6in tank can show u a pic of the wall its going on may be with the old tank with had there
either with both tanks or just one of them and then when we ever move set it up in shed
the hood or lid thinking of having it seating over the side as cant fill the tank up

ok i think i am confuse now my self how abt you lot
any way ill let you lot give me some ideas on it got to be the cheap way but look good
have price up the plywood thought of 'marine plywood' but looks like at b&q and wickes they do either Tropical Hardwood Ply,Hardwood Plywood,Exterior WBP Plywood,WBP Exterior Grade Plywood,Structural Spruce Plywood



anyway ill keep thinking abt it anyone have any ideas be good ill take them in

build the supports and shelves for function (so it doesn't fall). I would prob use 2 by 4s and double them up where needed. Make sure to use nuts and bolts. You can cover the thing in a more eye pleasing wood. I am in a hurry so this is just a quit path setter. I will be back later for a more in depth construction plan!

dude that rocks! I build fences for a living and if you break those fence posts you have some serious weight on them. finished prod looks great!

O yeah tell me what kinda lighting system you are using!

and by the way your diy caves look great.
