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.

Aquatic Fundamentals 102551-AMA Final Thoughts

"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."

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.

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.

"Worked great."

At first I didn't want to order a stand online. It's almost as if the person is in the room helping you build. There is even enough room inside the cabinet for a 5. It has a nice finish and plenty of space to store your aquarium supplies. Its more streamline with my furniture and I like it alot! I bought this for my 29 gallon tank. Easy to assemble and feels sturdy enough for my 14gal cube.

"I'm happy I ordered it."

Despite that, it is still a great stand. For the money, I like this product. The holes on the areas your will be screwing in were tuff. This fit my fluval chi tank perfectly. Otherwise it a very sturdy and easy to assemble stand. The reason that I gave 4 stars in stead of 5 is because of the wasted space. The only issue I have, though, is the doors.

Made of particle board but it does the job and looks good. I would highly recommend that one as well. Extremely high quality for such a small price. The final part of the assembly was the door.

10. Seachem Zeolite Marine & Freshwater Binding Agent - Ammonia and Heavy Metals 250 mL

Seachem 1272 First Impressions

"Very sturdy."

Extremely high quality for such a small price. They then tell you to mount the door and THEN install the top hinge. Pieces inside were free floating, and there were scratches. But it was still in good shape, just a few mild scratches. Fits my 32 gallon bio cube perfectly. Shipping was fine, but be aware that it is a somewhat heavy package before unpacked. Once properly assembled, the 32 gallon Bio-cube tank sits rock solid on the stand.

  • Seachem Zeolite Marine & Freshwater Binding Agent - Ammonia and Heavy Metals 250 mL
  • BINDER: Seachem Zeolite is a naturally occurring, highly-porous mineral that binds ammonia and heavy metals through an ion exchange mechanism.
  • REMOVER: Seachem Zeolite works in marine and freshwater to remove harmful metal ions such as lead, copper, nickel, and zinc without depleting calcium in saltwater nor increase general hardness in freshwater where the ionic strength is low.
  • DIRECTIONS: Use 250 mL (1 cup) of Seachem Zeolite for every 200 L (50 US gallons). For smaller aquariums, the equivalent dose is 5 mL (1 level teaspoon) per 4 L (1 US gallon). This amount of Seachem Zeolite will remove up to 0.5 mg/L ammonia. Ammonia levels should then drop to zero within 24-48 hours. At this point, the zeolite can be removed or replaced with Active Carbon.
  • FOR BEST RESULTS: Seachem Zeolite should be rinsed before use and placed so as to maximize the flow of water through it, but not so that it tumbles against itself in flow. Zeolite may be used in a canister filter, media chamber, box filter, or any high flow area of a trickle filter. Use of a filter bag is also recommended.
  • SAFETY: Be sure to wash thoroughly after handling Seachem Zeolite and store this product in its original container in a cool, dry area away from food or incompatible materials.

Seachem 1272 Final Thoughts

"I'd but it again."

This leaves just enough room for a little extra storage. It has a lot of space in the cabinet and the doors stay shut very well. Considering the price I'll probably go with Aquatic Fundamentals again in the future. I even had a couple of extra screws. At first I didn't want to order a stand online. Directions were easy to follow, no missing pieces. I am knocking a star for the construction of the frame being not quite square.
