Rated 1 out of 5 by KGaudette Not a quality product
Very cheap, low quality product. Not sturdy and very cheap looking. Handles made of plastic, particle board " paint" was already peeling. We disassembled and took it back to the store. Petsmart made the return very easy. Went with a higher quality model http://www.petsmart.com/fish/aquariums-stands/top-fin-center-shelf-aquarium-stand-zid36-17808/cat-36-catid-300013?var_id=36-17808&_t=pfm%3Dcategory

by Jesilynj Great stand for the price
I have a 50 gal tank with this stand, and I must say it has hold great for the past 7 months. Sure, it is not real wood, but if you take the time to read the instructions carefully and put it together, it will be very sturdy. I added a towel and a plastic garbage bag underneath the tank (between the tank and the stand) because of my AC, the tank sweats a bit. Aside from that, I highly recommend this stand. It has worked great so far, just seriously, take the time to read the instructions while you put it together... double and triple check.

Worst tank stand I have ever used, seen or even heard of. We also bought the garbage Top Fin 55 gallon kit and the cheap filter leaked on the stand the first day and the stand literally peeled like paper - lasted ONE DAY - TOTAL GARBAGE.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Oldconductor Not anywhere near the quality expected.
Yes I assembled it but in doing so I discovered the very, very poor quality of fiberboard used in its construction. The top of the stand is its only saving aspect. The structural integrity is weak because of the lack of braces and screws that could easily have improved it are not provided. Plastic handles, miss-aligned doors, a paper panel as a cover to the rear center section, shame. I replaced the single point hinges, with recessed cabinet hinges. I added just 12 new fiberboard fasteners to the assembly and an additional 10 "L" shaped braces to provide greater rigidity. I have placed a lot of time bringing it up to good engineering standards and I feel satisfied that it will hold the 55 gallon tank I intend to put on it, now that I have made the changes. Yep I'm keeping it. But, I do so now with my understanding of structure engineering improved this stand significantly and I can now qualify it as safe.
