Imagitarium First Impressions

"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. The shelving Is a plus, but I feel it is overpriced. Build time for 1 person is about 75 mins.

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.

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.

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.

"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.

"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.

Generic Final Thoughts

"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.

Hffheer First Impressions

"Perfect for a 29 gallon."

I bought this for my 29 gallon tank. The legs clip into the top frame, and the bottom shelf forces the legs apart. Not necessary to lay wood over the metal rim. I almost built one out of wood to save money yet still have quality but I found this. That took a lot of hand and my own weight and strength to get the screw in nicely. But it was still in good shape, just a few mild scratches. This is a great cabinet with quality water resistant coated wood.

"It is particle board."

I like how the front door'clicks' open and closed. I am knocking a star for the construction of the frame being not quite square. The back has large openings for filter tubes and power cords. The old version required nails and glue and had a cardboard backing. Water on top doesn't seem to affect it. It has a nice finish and plenty of space to store your aquarium supplies. Very solid construction and durable.

"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.
