Top Fin® Durham 55 Gallon Aquarium Stand
Looks great but poor quality
Cons: One of the hinges was missing. Called the manufacturer and they will be sending the missing hinge. Two of the holes weren't drilled. I had to do it myself (good thing I had a drill bit that size). The cam connectors crumbled when trying to tighten with a screwdriver. The left front leg is slightly warped/twisted. Pros: It looks really nice for a fish tank stand and the storage space comes in handy. It fits my 20 gal. tank perfectly. Nice that I don't block my electric outlet because of the open shelf at the bottom, too!

I really do love this stand. It was purchased as a display model, so luckily I didn't have to fight to put it together. It had some damage done to the corner of it so I got it at half price. I find it to be very sturdy, I have a 60 gallon tank on it and never had any problems with it. It has been set up at my home for 8 months now.

4 years and still beautiful woodwork!
I have had this for 4 years and counting and the wood work is still nice. I absolutely love it. I have it for my 55 Gallon Tank. It holds my fish items in one and my kids school things in another, and miscellaneous in the last. But it is neat and goes with the furniture in my living room. I'd rather this than those cheap metal stands. This makes me feel secure like my tank won't break through or fall over. I also had no trouble putting this together. My husband and I took 30 minutes to put this together with coffee and tea being made. So this is definitely a great buy.

Great piece of furniture
I have purchased 2 of these pieces, 1 20 gal. size and 1 37gal size. And yes, I did have to go buy some extra screws, but for the price point, and the quality of the piece for that price, I'd buy another one. I'm actually looking for the big sized one that they occasionally,(200 gal size), have in stock, to use to put my pet bird cages on, so they'll all match in the room with the fish tanks. I'm particularly impressed with the paint job on these pieces, as it is quite durable, and looks great. And the extra storage behind closed cupboard doors is a great plus.
