It was great meeting you today, I love to put a face on a screen name, your drawing seams perfect now. Please do not hesitate to ask any other questions, I might not be an expert but I have learned the hard way.

will this work with the 2x4's on the outside and im going to skin it with a nice piece of birch. im gonna start it tom.

the reason behind me doing it this way is so i can have a full 24x24 inside the stand

your drawing is really not to detail, but here is my take
if you double up on your upper rails, you can have your 24x24 inner dimension, when you do that just cross brace the front and back. your stand will have a 1 1/2" lip around the perimeter of the tank,

if you do, i don't think you are going to have any support in the back.
finished size of inner frame is 24x24
outer frame is 27x27.
the only way that might work is if you use a 4x4 and notch out, but 4x4 has a tendency to twist
