if you're going to make it yourself 2x4's will work fine

A thirty gallon tank is only about 250 pounds, so the stand doesn't have to be super strong. If you use 3/4 inch thick plywood for the sides and back, with a "header" of the same material across the top of the front opening, it will be strong enough. I have a thread in the DIY section showing a stand for a 10 gallon tank. That same design, with different dimensions, of course, would work fine.
