Generic First Impressions

"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.

Generic Final Thoughts

"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.

2. 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.

3. Marineland Majesty Aquarium Wood Stand, 49.88" L X 14.38" W X 28" H, 49.88 in, Black

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.

"Love the design."

The final part of the assembly was the door. These parts have a semi gloss black finish and seem to restst any scratching. It has a lot of space in the cabinet and the doors stay shut very well. If you want a shelf, you'll have to install them yourself from your own wood. The final part of the assembly was the door. It looks much more expensive and custom than it is.

"Pretty Happy."

This is even more gorgeous in person. I don't know if the wood is water sealed. Don't like center bar on top but understand why it must be there. I use this to support two parakeet cages. The old version required nails and glue and had a cardboard backing. Never have had concerns about it being strong enough or stable. I cannot say enough good about this stand!

User Ratings: 58

"Very nice look."

Seems very sturdy and looks nice with my 50 gallon aquarium. It looks much more expensive and custom than it is. Hopefully the above can save someone else a bit of aggravation. It isn't the best to look at, but it was very cheap compared to the nice wood stands. I am knocking a star for the construction of the frame being not quite square. Each part was labeled for easy step by step assemble. The final part of the assembly was the door.

"I also have a small apt."

Directions were easy to follow, no missing pieces. Very solid construction and durable. If not for the price I would give this 5 stars easily. Beware if you find the top on line. I was wary of particle board stands but this is a great value and is very sturdy. If you have a lot of large things to store the shelves would not be an issue. The only issue I have, though, is the doors.
