"Works great."

Easy to out together and does its job- holding my Fluval Flex. If you want a shelf, you'll have to install them yourself from your own wood. Easy to assemble and feels sturdy enough for my 14gal cube. Considering the price I'll probably go with Aquatic Fundamentals again in the future. Looks like it should last for a long time. Stand was a perfect fit for my Aqueon 10 Gallon Tank on the top. I was expecting something flimsy and cheap at this price but NOT AT ALL.

"I own two of these."

The design fits right in with the house and it looks amazing. I don't know if the wood is water sealed. It was kinda a pain to put together but other then that it is awesome! At first I didn't want to order a stand online. This stand is much more than I expected. When the box arrived, I almost sent it back, there was so much damage. Just make sure to measure your tank before ordering.

"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 like the stand."

Only negative is it scratches easily. I ended up getting a 50 gallon breeder tank that fits perfectly. Extremely high quality for such a small price. Not necessary to lay wood over the metal rim. I really love the powder coated finish to protect it from water damage. The coating on the outside is great. It was kinda a pain to put together but other then that it is awesome!

"Excellent product!"

The design fits right in with the house and it looks amazing. I did not install the hanging panel. Stand was a perfect fit for my Aqueon 10 Gallon Tank on the top. It fits my 20 gallon tank perfectly. Holds my 10 gal fish tank with no worries. Check out my how to video on my YouTube channel electric blue aquariums. It looks much more expensive and custom than it is.

"Love the way it looks."

At first I didn't want to order a stand online. Not necessary to lay wood over the metal rim. After looking at many different stand at local pet stores, I was very disappointed. If you have an aquarium of a different design, it may not fit. Only negative is it scratches easily. This fit my 29 gallon tank perfectly. These parts have a semi gloss black finish and seem to restst any scratching.

"I also have a small apt."

I got a size up for a 29 gallon tank to have some room on the sides for fish food. The 29 gallon stand was easy to assemble but it should be done with two people. This stand is much more than I expected. This fit my fluval chi tank perfectly. Despite that, it is still a great stand. The backside is wood, not cardboard, and makes the stand very sturdy. All pieces to my unit were there and after reading reviews I was concerned.

"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.

"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 well made."

Easy to put together, great price, and looks great with my set up. The final part of the assembly was the door. The back has large openings for filter tubes and power cords. I never had a proper aquarium stand before. 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. It sounds a bit odd, but it's actually very sturdy once assembled.

"Very easy to assemble."

The backside is wood, not cardboard, and makes the stand very sturdy. That took a lot of hand and my own weight and strength to get the screw in nicely. Beware if you find the top on line. Fits my 32 gallon bio cube perfectly. If you have an aquarium of a different design, it may not fit. The 29 gallon stand was easy to assemble but it should be done with two people. For the money, I like this product.

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. Not necessary to lay wood over the metal rim. This is even more gorgeous in person. Seems very sturdy and looks nice with my 50 gallon aquarium. The coating on the outside is great.

"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 own two of these."

That took a lot of hand and my own weight and strength to get the screw in nicely. They came apart and extremely cumbersome. I like the dual aquarium aspect of it so that I can have a 10 gallon aquarium below. The finish absolutely will bubble if you get it wet. However, one gets use to working within the space provided. Otherwise it a very sturdy and easy to assemble stand. I don't know if the wood is water sealed.

Easy to put together, great price, and looks great with my set up. Very sturdy- much better quality than I was expecting for the price. Easy to out together and does its job- holding my Fluval Flex. I took a pic of my 3 year old in front of it so u can see how tall this is. This fit my fluval chi tank perfectly. I never had a proper aquarium stand before. This stand was very easy to setup and is very sturdy.
