They can allow for a little movement without the issue of metal fatigue.
There are easy setups that don't take any serious skills to put together. Some nice cedar finished 2x4's can easily be made up to hold one tank reasonably inexpensively, no reason it can't be setup for two. Just do a search for "DIY tank stand" here or ask for some stand ideas, strong and cheap. I've seen at least one recently.
Even if I could come up with the money to do so, it wouldnt be for another month or so. I am not sure what I could buy that could possibly hold a tank. Would a dresser be fine? Solid wood is expensive where are you finding that for under $100.....
