Something that jumps out at me in both pictures is that the ends of the tanks aren't supported and are hanging over the stands. This is extremely dangerous and is likely an accident waiting to happen. I would, at the very least, add a nice thick piece of plywood across the tops of your stands that can support the tanks all around their edges. A better solution would be to buy or build stands that can fully support the tanks. I'd hate to see a thread pop up with an exploded 36 gallon tank with fish flopping around on the floor!

nice tanks.
same thoughts as mr batman there.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
