"This is a HEAVY piece."

It was kinda a pain to put together but other then that it is awesome! A lot of storage and our aquatic turtles love all that space from 20 to a 40 gallon. Seems very sturdy and looks nice with my 50 gallon aquarium. Very sturdy- much better quality than I was expecting for the price. Holds my 10 gal fish tank with no worries. The shelving Is a plus, but I feel it is overpriced. Build time for 1 person is about 75 mins.

"Easy to set up."

All of the stands I came across were either too flimsy or too expensive. So for the price I would buy again. The assembly took me about an hour with some distractions. Its all open so you can fit everything from a 5lb c02 tank to a wound up garden hose. The final part of the assembly was the door. This fit my fluval chi tank perfectly. Only negative is it scratches easily.

Very sturdy- much better quality than I was expecting for the price. Just like any other furniture assembly. It sounds a bit odd, but it's actually very sturdy once assembled. I also have the version that fits my 75 gallon tank. The partially open back gives fabulous access to the electricals. The back has large openings for filter tubes and power cords.

"Very sturdy."

I have a 55 gallon Marineland aquarium. Not necessary to lay wood over the metal rim. The 29 gallon stand was easy to assemble but it should be done with two people. Stand was a perfect fit for my Aqueon 10 Gallon Tank on the top. I have a 55 gallon Marineland aquarium. Build time for 1 person is about 75 mins. That took a lot of hand and my own weight and strength to get the screw in nicely.

The design fits right in with the house and it looks amazing. Build time for 1 person is about 75 mins. It is easy to set up if you take your time to lay it all out first. Easy to put together, maybe 30 minutes. I also have the version that fits my 75 gallon tank. Once that was done, the rest of the assembly was easy.

Aquatic Fundamentals 16551 Final Thoughts

"Great stand!"

I am knocking a star for the construction of the frame being not quite square. Just make sure to measure your tank before ordering. All pieces to my unit were there and after reading reviews I was concerned. Seems very sturdy and looks nice with my 50 gallon aquarium. The only thing I would be cautious of ordering this is the dimensions of the stand. This fit my 29 gallon tank perfectly. The bottom shelf has no pegs and can accommodate another small tank or supplies.

"Arrived in undamaged box."

I even had a couple of extra screws. The holes on the areas your will be screwing in were tuff. Water on top doesn't seem to affect it. Considering the price I'll probably go with Aquatic Fundamentals again in the future. I cannot say enough good about this stand! I use this to support two parakeet cages. It took me 20 minutes to put together and it looks so good with my aquarium.

"Perfect for a 29 gallon."

I must have a better UPS driver than most. After looking at many different stand at local pet stores, I was very disappointed. There was a knock at the door and a package arrived. This is even more gorgeous in person. My wife was always mad about the aquarium supplies, bottled water, food, etc. I even had a couple of extra screws. It has a nice finish and plenty of space to store your aquarium supplies.

"However I will say this."

The bottom is a little curve, I cut a yoga mat to even out the little curve. Check out my how to video on my YouTube channel electric blue aquariums. I have a 55 gallon Marineland aquarium. Otherwise it a very sturdy and easy to assemble stand. The design fits right in with the house and it looks amazing. Once properly assembled, the 32 gallon Bio-cube tank sits rock solid on the stand. I never had a proper aquarium stand before.

I was expecting something flimsy and cheap at this price but NOT AT ALL. Considering the price I'll probably go with Aquatic Fundamentals again in the future. This stand is pretty easy to assemble, and actually does not require any tools. It looks much more expensive and custom than it is. At first I didn't want to order a stand online.

"Works great."

The end result looks so nice and feels sturdy. A lot of storage and our aquatic turtles love all that space from 20 to a 40 gallon. They came apart and extremely cumbersome. All in all, I'm very happy with the end product! It looks much more expensive and custom than it is. It sounds a bit odd, but it's actually very sturdy once assembled. This stand is perfect for my bio cube aquarium.

My only wish would be that the center door could be a little wider. It sounds a bit odd, but it's actually very sturdy once assembled. As I proceeded to assemble the stand, I was pleasantly surprised! My only wish would be that the center door could be a little wider. Just like any other furniture assembly.

"Great product!"

The final part of the assembly was the door. Easy to assemble except for the screws! They came apart and extremely cumbersome. I don't know if the wood is water sealed. It has a lot of space in the cabinet and the doors stay shut very well. However, one gets use to working within the space provided. That took a lot of hand and my own weight and strength to get the screw in nicely.

Check out my how to video on my YouTube channel electric blue aquariums. This is even more gorgeous in person. Once that was done, the rest of the assembly was easy. Directions were easy to follow, no missing pieces. I was expecting something flimsy and cheap at this price but NOT AT ALL. The only issue I have, though, is the doors. Best part, didn't have to buy a tank and a table separate.

Best part, didn't have to buy a tank and a table separate. As I proceeded to assemble the stand, I was pleasantly surprised!
