"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.

Aquatic Fundamentals 102551-AMA First Impressions

"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.

"I like the stand."

Only negative is it scratches easily. I ended up getting a 50 gallon breeder tank that fits perfectly. Extremely high quality for such a small price. Not necessary to lay wood over the metal rim. I really love the powder coated finish to protect it from water damage. The coating on the outside is great. It was kinda a pain to put together but other then that it is awesome!

"Excellent product!"

The design fits right in with the house and it looks amazing. I did not install the hanging panel. Stand was a perfect fit for my Aqueon 10 Gallon Tank on the top. It fits my 20 gallon tank perfectly. Holds my 10 gal fish tank with no worries. Check out my how to video on my YouTube channel electric blue aquariums. It looks much more expensive and custom than it is.

"Great stand!"

I would highly recommend this stand. This stand is perfect for my bio cube aquarium. I also have the version that fits my 75 gallon tank. It looks much more expensive and custom than it is. It isn't the best to look at, but it was very cheap compared to the nice wood stands. Its all open so you can fit everything from a 5lb c02 tank to a wound up garden hose.

"I pray it works."

The back has large openings for filter tubes and power cords. I did add wood glue when assembling it. This fit my fluval chi tank perfectly. Only negative is it scratches easily. If you have an aquarium of a different design, it may not fit. I bought this for my 29 gallon tank. The bottom is a little curve, I cut a yoga mat to even out the little curve.

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!

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.

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.

"I own two of these."

That took a lot of hand and my own weight and strength to get the screw in nicely. They came apart and extremely cumbersome. I like the dual aquarium aspect of it so that I can have a 10 gallon aquarium below. The finish absolutely will bubble if you get it wet. However, one gets use to working within the space provided. Otherwise it a very sturdy and easy to assemble stand. I don't know if the wood is water sealed.

I have a 55 gallon Marineland aquarium. All pieces to my unit were there and after reading reviews I was concerned. After looking at many different stand at local pet stores, I was very disappointed.

You do have complete access on the sides as the panel is only on the front. Maybe I will get a nicer one some day, but this looks fine in the living room too. I used to have the same one same size, but black mode about 2 years ago. They then tell you to mount the door and THEN install the top hinge.
