Mounting shelves to metal studs.

I'm trying to install metal L shaped shelf brackets to a wall to hold as much weight as possible. The studs are metal in this wall and I'm not sure of the best method to do this. I think a cleat along the wall might be the strongest but not very pretty and i'm not sure what type of fastners or screws to use. Any help is appreciated.

Use hollow wall anchors. Drill a pilot hole. when you tighten to set the anchor it will butterfly out against the inside wall of the stud.
