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.

"No damage."

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. But it was still in good shape, just a few mild scratches. This stand looks pretty good and feels pretty sturdy. If you want a shelf, you'll have to install them yourself from your own wood. It fits my 20 gallon tank perfectly. Extremely high quality for such a small price.

"Well packaged."

For the money, I like this product. My wife was always mad about the aquarium supplies, bottled water, food, etc. I even had a couple of extra screws. All pieces to my unit were there and after reading reviews I was concerned. Considering the price I'll probably go with Aquatic Fundamentals again in the future. This stand is perfect for my bio cube aquarium. 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.

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.

Once that was done, the rest of the assembly was easy. But it was still in good shape, just a few mild scratches. The bottom is a little curve, I cut a yoga mat to even out the little curve. Considering the price I'll probably go with Aquatic Fundamentals again in the future. Despite that, it is still a great stand. I was expecting something flimsy and cheap at this price but NOT AT ALL.

"Works great."

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.

8. 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 Zeolite Marine & Freshwater Binding Agent - Ammonia and Heavy Metals 250 mL
  • 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 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.

This is perfect for my 10 gallon tank on top and will add my 5. I really love the powder coated finish to protect it from water damage.

But it was still in good shape, just a few mild scratches. The legs clip into the top frame, and the bottom shelf forces the legs apart. Shipping was fine, but be aware that it is a somewhat heavy package before unpacked. However, one gets use to working within the space provided. This fit my 29 gallon tank perfectly. Works great with the aquarium and sturdy enough that I don't have to worry. I can't say enough good things about this product.
