The pothos decided to drape behind the tank.
This is how I keep any fish from eating the delicate pothos roots, it is a floating breeder net which uses air trapped in the handles to stay afloat. I’d recommend it as it has a variety of uses.

A shrub like plant which later ended up dying.
4 pictures showing new growth on the pothos, some of which are red.

Perhaps you could have the cinder blocks in the middle and some wooden supports on the outside. Like make a rectangle and have it fit very snugly under the plywood so it would add support across the edges. Would something like that work you think?
"Bit more sturdy", cinder blocks are very sturdy. I could run full speed into my 75 gallon that only has 12 cinder blocks (2 blocks across and 3 high on each side of the tank) and that stand wouldn't budge. If you completely fill the space below the tank with the blocks then I guarantee you that...
I actually know of a cheap strong stand that literally anyone can get set up. It's not pretty itself but it does the job and you can make it look better easily. It's simple some cinder blocks and some plywood.
