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.

"Stand is great."

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. The assembly took me about an hour with some distractions.

"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.

"This one though."

It's almost as if the person is in the room helping you build. Holding up my 30 gallon cube aquarium. It was kinda a pain to put together but other then that it is awesome! I would have given it 5 stars except for the price. I like the dual aquarium aspect of it so that I can have a 10 gallon aquarium below. The bottom shelf has no pegs and can accommodate another small tank or supplies. A lot of storage and our aquatic turtles love all that space from 20 to a 40 gallon.

"But I love it."

I would have given it 5 stars except for the price. Easy to put together, great price, and looks great with my set up. The 29 gallon stand was easy to assemble but it should be done with two people. The only issue I have, though, is the doors. The final part of the assembly was the door. Great compliment for the Fluval Flex 15 aquarium. There is even enough room inside the cabinet for a 5.

"Super sturdy."

Its more streamline with my furniture and I like it alot! Maybe I will get a nicer one some day, but this looks fine in the living room too. But it was still in good shape, just a few mild scratches. This stand is perfect for my bio cube aquarium. And it took me and my gf's 11 year old son about an hour to put together. The 29 gallon stand was easy to assemble but it should be done with two people. Never have had concerns about it being strong enough or stable.

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.

"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.

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.

"No damage."

This is a great cabinet with quality water resistant coated wood. They company was very helpful with replacement. I cannot say enough good about this stand! The holes on the areas your will be screwing in were tuff. There was a knock at the door and a package arrived. Stand was a perfect fit for my Aqueon 10 Gallon Tank on the top. Once assembled, the stand was very sturdy.

8. 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.

Seachem 1275 Final Thoughts

"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.

10. 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.

Generic Final Thoughts

"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.
