"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!

Coralife 100531923 Final Thoughts

"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.

Coralife 100115664 First Impressions

"I love it."

I like the dual aquarium aspect of it so that I can have a 10 gallon aquarium below. It isn't the best to look at, but it was very cheap compared to the nice wood stands. I would highly recommend that one as well. Easy to out together and does its job- holding my Fluval Flex. Its more streamline with my furniture and I like it alot! It looks much more expensive and custom than it is. They then tell you to mount the door and THEN install the top hinge.

"Nice stand."

If you have an aquarium of a different design, it may not fit. Made of particle board but it does the job and looks good. I don't know if the wood is water sealed. Very sturdy- much better quality than I was expecting for the price. Check out my how to video on my YouTube channel electric blue aquariums. This stand is pretty easy to assemble, and actually does not require any tools. Very sturdy- much better quality than I was expecting for the price.

Coralife FBA_100115663 First Impressions

"Okay so here's an update."

This went together easily and has held up nicely. The 29 gallon stand was easy to assemble but it should be done with two people. The assembly took me about an hour with some distractions. I was expecting something flimsy and cheap at this price but NOT AT ALL. For the money, I like this product. Easy to assemble and feels sturdy enough for my 14gal cube. That took a lot of hand and my own weight and strength to get the screw in nicely.

"Arrived in undamaged box."

I even had a couple of extra screws. The holes on the areas your will be screwing in were tuff. Water on top doesn't seem to affect it. Considering the price I'll probably go with Aquatic Fundamentals again in the future. I cannot say enough good about this stand! I use this to support two parakeet cages. It took me 20 minutes to put together and it looks so good with my aquarium.

4. Imagitarium Newport Wooden Tank Stand - for 20 Gallon Aquariums, 24.75 in

Imagitarium First Impressions

"Easy to put together."

It fits my 20 gallon tank perfectly. My wife was always mad about the aquarium supplies, bottled water, food, etc. I must have a better UPS driver than most. Great compliment for the Fluval Flex 15 aquarium. You do have complete access on the sides as the panel is only on the front. The only thing I would be cautious of ordering this is the dimensions of the stand. The end result looks so nice and feels sturdy.

"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.

5. 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.

"Easy to put together."

The backside is wood, not cardboard, and makes the stand very sturdy. The shelving Is a plus, but I feel it is overpriced. I did not install the hanging panel. It was kinda a pain to put together but other then that it is awesome! Each part was labeled for easy step by step assemble. I don't know if the wood is water sealed. All in all this is a very good product for the money.

"Arrived in undamaged box."

The partially open back gives fabulous access to the electricals. The bottom shelf has no pegs and can accommodate another small tank or supplies. The bottom shelf has no pegs and can accommodate another small tank or supplies. Once properly assembled, the 32 gallon Bio-cube tank sits rock solid on the stand. The back has large openings for filter tubes and power cords. I would highly recommend this stand. I got a size up for a 29 gallon tank to have some room on the sides for fish food.

"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.

"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.

8. 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.

"Easy to put together."

Best part, didn't have to buy a tank and a table separate. As I proceeded to assemble the stand, I was pleasantly surprised! These parts have a semi gloss black finish and seem to restst any scratching. Never have had concerns about it being strong enough or stable. I would have given it 5 stars except for the price. It sounds a bit odd, but it's actually very sturdy once assembled. It feels really sturdy and excellent quality.
