"This stand looks nice."

As I proceeded to assemble the stand, I was pleasantly surprised! It feels really sturdy and excellent quality. Dude, you can have all ur friends stand on this and it won't collapse. My wife was always mad about the aquarium supplies, bottled water, food, etc. I laid on top of it to test its sturdiness and it was solid. I bought this for my 29 gallon tank. Very sturdy- much better quality than I was expecting for the price.

"This is a HEAVY piece."

Hopefully the above can save someone else a bit of aggravation. I also have the version that fits my 75 gallon tank. Never have had concerns about it being strong enough or stable. Considering the price I'll probably go with Aquatic Fundamentals again in the future. Its more streamline with my furniture and I like it alot! I got a size up for a 29 gallon tank to have some room on the sides for fish food. The bottom shelf has no pegs and can accommodate another small tank or supplies.

2. 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.

Aquatic Fundamentals 16501 First Impressions

"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.

"Well packaged."

If not for the price I would give this 5 stars easily. Maybe I will get a nicer one some day, but this looks fine in the living room too. The bottom shelf has no pegs and can accommodate another small tank or supplies. Stand was a perfect fit for my Aqueon 10 Gallon Tank on the top. Smaller tank I upgraded from had a stand with tiered shelves. The final part of the assembly was the door. The assembly took me about an hour with some distractions.

"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 250 mL

Seachem 1272 First Impressions

"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. Once properly assembled, the 32 gallon Bio-cube tank sits rock solid on the stand.

Seachem 1272 Final Thoughts

"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.

"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!

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.

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.

"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.

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. 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. Just like any other furniture assembly.
