"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."

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. You do have complete access on the sides as the panel is only on the front.

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.

"Easy to put together."

Easy to out together and does its job- holding my Fluval Flex. My wife was always mad about the aquarium supplies, bottled water, food, etc. This went together easily and has held up nicely. The shelving Is a plus, but I feel it is overpriced. The finish absolutely will bubble if you get it wet. Looks like it should last for a long time. This stand looks pretty good and feels pretty sturdy.

Aquatic Fundamentals 36301-01-AMZ First Impressions

"Very nice look."

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. Pieces inside were free floating, and there were scratches. This is even more gorgeous in person.

"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.

"Really heavy."

A lot of storage and our aquatic turtles love all that space from 20 to a 40 gallon. All in all this is a very good product for the money. This leaves just enough room for a little extra storage. The coating on the outside is great. Never have had concerns about it being strong enough or stable. I put felt pads on the legs to make sure they don't scratch our hardwood floors. Easy to put together, maybe 30 minutes.

7. Seachem Zeolite Marine & Freshwater Binding Agent - Ammonia and Heavy Metals 2 L

User Ratings: 68

Seachem 1275 First Impressions

"Really nice stand."

I can't say enough good things about this product. I did add wood glue when assembling it. Holds my 10 gal fish tank with no worries. Just make sure to measure your tank before ordering. Check out my how to video on my YouTube channel electric blue aquariums. There is even enough room inside the cabinet for a 5. Looks like it should last for a long time.

  • Seachem Zeolite Marine & Freshwater Binding Agent - Ammonia and Heavy Metals 2 L
  • 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.

"Make sure to use glue!"

It is a good match for the associated tank. Extremely high quality for such a small price. All pieces to my unit were there and after reading reviews I was concerned. If you want a shelf, you'll have to install them yourself from your own wood. The finish absolutely will bubble if you get it wet. Once that was done, the rest of the assembly was easy. I was expecting something flimsy and cheap at this price but NOT AT ALL.

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.

9. Black Acrylic Adjustable Frag Rack and Skimmer Stand

Generic First Impressions

"I have gone through two."

Check out my how to video on my YouTube channel electric blue aquariums. The reason that I gave 4 stars in stead of 5 is because of the wasted space. All of the stands I came across were either too flimsy or too expensive. Shipping was fine, but be aware that it is a somewhat heavy package before unpacked. The quality and rigidity of the stand seem to be above par. Great compliment for the Fluval Flex 15 aquarium. Holds my 10 gal fish tank with no worries.

"Excellent product."

The coating on the outside is great. I did not install the hanging panel. The assembly took me about an hour with some distractions. The bottom is a little curve, I cut a yoga mat to even out the little curve. The black matches the black plastic trim on our 10 gal tank almost perfectly. All in all this is a very good product for the money. This fit my 29 gallon tank perfectly.

MarineLand First Impressions

"5 in the bottom."

I got a size up for a 29 gallon tank to have some room on the sides for fish food. Easy to put together, maybe 30 minutes. The back has large openings for filter tubes and power cords. My wife was always mad about the aquarium supplies, bottled water, food, etc. I don't know if the wood is water sealed. They then tell you to mount the door and THEN install the top hinge. Looks like it should last for a long time.
