Default Earthquake!

We've been getting some good ones (Earthquakes) here lately and am wondering about securing my tanks to the wall somehow.. Any ideas?

I had to secure mine because of my wifes in home child care. I found a stud behind the tank next to an electrical outlet. I lag screwed a 14" 2x4 to the wall then just kept adding till I got to the framing of the stand, which was about 6" from the wall. It isn't pretty but you can't see it and the state child care inspector was happy.

Will it work when the big one hits? I sure hope so! Least I know the stand won't go any where hard to tell about the tank itself and the 220 plus gallons of water
