"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.

Imagitarium Final Thoughts

"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.

"This is a HEAVY piece."

It was kinda a pain to put together but other then that it is awesome! A lot of storage and our aquatic turtles love all that space from 20 to a 40 gallon. Seems very sturdy and looks nice with my 50 gallon aquarium. Very sturdy- much better quality than I was expecting for the price. Holds my 10 gal fish tank with no worries.

Aquatic Fundamentals 102551-AMA Final Thoughts

"Easy to set up."

All of the stands I came across were either too flimsy or too expensive. So for the price I would buy again. The assembly took me about an hour with some distractions. Its all open so you can fit everything from a 5lb c02 tank to a wound up garden hose. The final part of the assembly was the door. This fit my fluval chi tank perfectly. Only negative is it scratches easily.

User Ratings: 66 8

Imagitarium First Impressions

"This is great."

The coating on the outside is great. The old version required nails and glue and had a cardboard backing. My only wish would be that the center door could be a little wider. Considering the price I'll probably go with Aquatic Fundamentals again in the future. It is easy to set up if you take your time to lay it all out first. It fits my 20 gallon tank perfectly. As I proceeded to assemble the stand, I was pleasantly surprised!

"Nice stand."

There was a knock at the door and a package arrived. Best part, didn't have to buy a tank and a table separate. The quality and rigidity of the stand seem to be above par. Easy assemble, good match for SeaClear 50 Gallon. This went together easily and has held up nicely. The quality and rigidity of the stand seem to be above par. Once that was done, the rest of the assembly was easy.

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.

"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. Easy to put together, maybe 30 minutes.

"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.

"I love it."

I like the dual aquarium aspect of it so that I can have a 10 gallon aquarium below. It isn't the best to look at, but it was very cheap compared to the nice wood stands. I would highly recommend that one as well. Easy to out together and does its job- holding my Fluval Flex. Its more streamline with my furniture and I like it alot!

"Nice stand."

If you have an aquarium of a different design, it may not fit. Made of particle board but it does the job and looks good. I don't know if the wood is water sealed. Very sturdy- much better quality than I was expecting for the price. Check out my how to video on my YouTube channel electric blue aquariums.

"I own two of these."

The design fits right in with the house and it looks amazing. I don't know if the wood is water sealed. It was kinda a pain to put together but other then that it is awesome! At first I didn't want to order a stand online. This stand is much more than I expected. When the box arrived, I almost sent it back, there was so much damage. Just make sure to measure your tank before ordering.

"Great product!"

The final part of the assembly was the door. Easy to assemble except for the screws! They came apart and extremely cumbersome. I don't know if the wood is water sealed. It has a lot of space in the cabinet and the doors stay shut very well. However, one gets use to working within the space provided. That took a lot of hand and my own weight and strength to get the screw in nicely.
