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.

This is a great cabinet with quality water resistant coated wood. They company was very helpful with replacement. I cannot say enough good about this stand! The holes on the areas your will be screwing in were tuff. There was a knock at the door and a package arrived. Stand was a perfect fit for my Aqueon 10 Gallon Tank on the top.

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.

"Really heavy."

A lot of storage and our aquatic turtles love all that space from 20 to a 40 gallon. All in all this is a very good product for the money. This leaves just enough room for a little extra storage. The coating on the outside is great. Never have had concerns about it being strong enough or stable. I put felt pads on the legs to make sure they don't scratch our hardwood floors.

Just like any other furniture assembly.

"Just perfect for my tank."

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.

"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.
