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."

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.

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.

"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.

"It is metal."

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.

"It is particle board."

I like how the front door'clicks' open and closed. I am knocking a star for the construction of the frame being not quite square. The back has large openings for filter tubes and power cords. The old version required nails and glue and had a cardboard backing. Water on top doesn't seem to affect it. It has a nice finish and plenty of space to store your aquarium supplies. Very solid construction and durable.

"Well packaged."

For the money, I like this product. My wife was always mad about the aquarium supplies, bottled water, food, etc. I even had a couple of extra screws. All pieces to my unit were there and after reading reviews I was concerned. Considering the price I'll probably go with Aquatic Fundamentals again in the future.

But it was still in good shape, just a few mild scratches. I even had a couple of extra screws. Maybe I will get a nicer one some day, but this looks fine in the living room too. I would have given it 5 stars except for the price. It has a lot of space in the cabinet and the doors stay shut very well. Very sturdy- much better quality than I was expecting for the price. It is a good match for the associated tank.

The legs clip into the top frame, and the bottom shelf forces the legs apart. It feels really sturdy and excellent quality. Great compliment for the Fluval Flex 15 aquarium.

"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.

"FANTASTIC!"

Hopefully the above can save someone else a bit of aggravation. Works great with the aquarium and sturdy enough that I don't have to worry. When the box arrived, I almost sent it back, there was so much damage. I used to have the same one same size, but black mode about 2 years ago. Check out my how to video on my YouTube channel electric blue aquariums. The 29 gallon stand was easy to assemble but it should be done with two people. I use this to support two parakeet cages.

This went together easily and has held up nicely. The stand was easy to assemble and very stable compared to the 2x4 stand I had. The old version required nails and glue and had a cardboard backing. Check out my how to video on my YouTube channel electric blue aquariums. Directions were easy to follow, no missing pieces. This fit my 29 gallon tank perfectly. I don't know if the wood is water sealed.
