Wall mounted shelving for aquarium

I have a 15gal acrylic aquarium that I would like to put on a wall mounted shelf. Understandably, this shelving system will have to hold up at least 185lbs due to the weight of the water, the aquarium, and anything else inside the aquarium. I have identified the following as a possible option: http://www.lowes.com/pd_271768-315-1...aid&facetInfo=

Along with these: http://www.lowes.com/pd_61990-315-FG...aid&facetInfo=

The rubbermaid fasttrack rail is supposed to hold up to 1750lbs. My stud spacing is a little weird since my house was built in the 1930's... but assuming I can get this rail installed in at least 2-3 studs, it should hold the weight right?

Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you

I'de put legs under it anyways. Maybe the brackets can handle it, but can the wall?
If those were your kids in the aquarium you'de probably put legs under it.
