Modified homemade stand from 40g to 55g

Inside the cabinet, the corners are doubled up 2x4”. The fresh wood are 2x4 that extend past the cabinet by 7”. And there is bottom brace tying it back to the cabinet.

So side supports have to hold 7”x13”x21” of water. This works out to be 70 lbs a side.

looks reasonable? Right?
This is a free tank so I didn’t want spend too much.
I would be comfortable with that with the side supports as long as the main stand itself is capable of holding a 55g tank. Make sure it isn't built to only hold 40g and if it is then brace it more if you haven't already
