1. Clear Acrylic Adjustable Frag Rack and Skimmer Stand

User Ratings: 69 31

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.

"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.

Aquatic Fundamentals 36301-01-AMZ First Impressions

"Very nice look."

I was expecting something flimsy and cheap at this price but NOT AT ALL. Considering the price I'll probably go with Aquatic Fundamentals again in the future. This stand is pretty easy to assemble, and actually does not require any tools. It looks much more expensive and custom than it is. At first I didn't want to order a stand online. Pieces inside were free floating, and there were scratches. This is even more gorgeous in person.

Aquatic Fundamentals 36301-01-AMZ Final Thoughts

"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. This stand is perfect for my bio cube aquarium.

4. 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.

Petoolife First Impressions

"Love the way it looks."

At first I didn't want to order a stand online. Not necessary to lay wood over the metal rim. After looking at many different stand at local pet stores, I was very disappointed. If you have an aquarium of a different design, it may not fit. Only negative is it scratches easily. This fit my 29 gallon tank perfectly. These parts have a semi gloss black finish and seem to restst any scratching.

"I also have a small apt."

I got a size up for a 29 gallon tank to have some room on the sides for fish food. The 29 gallon stand was easy to assemble but it should be done with two people. This stand is much more than I expected. This fit my fluval chi tank perfectly. Despite that, it is still a great stand. The backside is wood, not cardboard, and makes the stand very sturdy. All pieces to my unit were there and after reading reviews I was concerned.

"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.

"Works great."

But it was still in good shape, just a few mild scratches. I even had a couple of extra screws. Maybe I will get a nicer one some day, but this looks fine in the living room too. I would have given it 5 stars except for the price. It has a lot of space in the cabinet and the doors stay shut very well. Very sturdy- much better quality than I was expecting for the price. It is a good match for the associated tank.

"Looks great too."

This is perfect for my 10 gallon tank on top and will add my 5. I wanted to get a fish stand for my 20 gallon high aquarium. If you have a lot of large things to store the shelves would not be an issue. Seems this would be a perfect fit for the Aqueon 5. Dude, you can have all ur friends stand on this and it won't collapse. Holds my 10 gal fish tank with no worries. Fits my 32 gallon bio cube perfectly.

"It is metal."

It has a lot of space in the cabinet and the doors stay shut very well. The reason that I gave 4 stars in stead of 5 is because of the wasted space. Very sturdy- much better quality than I was expecting for the price. If you want a shelf, you'll have to install them yourself from your own wood. This is a great cabinet with quality water resistant coated wood. I would highly recommend that one as well. This fit my 29 gallon tank perfectly.

"This one though."

It's almost as if the person is in the room helping you build. Holding up my 30 gallon cube aquarium. It was kinda a pain to put together but other then that it is awesome! I would have given it 5 stars except for the price. I like the dual aquarium aspect of it so that I can have a 10 gallon aquarium below. The bottom shelf has no pegs and can accommodate another small tank or supplies. A lot of storage and our aquatic turtles love all that space from 20 to a 40 gallon.

I would have given it 5 stars except for the price. Easy to put together, great price, and looks great with my set up. The 29 gallon stand was easy to assemble but it should be done with two people. The only issue I have, though, is the doors. The final part of the assembly was the door. Great compliment for the Fluval Flex 15 aquarium. There is even enough room inside the cabinet for a 5.

This is perfect for my 10 gallon tank on top and will add my 5. Check out my how to video on my YouTube channel electric blue aquariums. The holes on the areas your will be screwing in were tuff. Water on top doesn't seem to affect it. I must have a better UPS driver than most. The only issue I have, though, is the doors. Stand was a perfect fit for my Aqueon 10 Gallon Tank on the top.
