This steel stand has two shelves and a flared design that is wider at the base. It measures approximately 28.4 (L) x 16 (W) x 5.4 (H) inches and weighs about 15 lbs. The aquarium stand is light enough to shift about your room but is robust enough to hold both 10 gallon and 5.5 gallon tanks: the top shelf holds the larger aquarium while the bottom shelf holds the smaller one, but the choice is yours because the bottom shelf can be utilized for holding fish tank accessories instead. It does have a rust-resistant coat so you won’t have to worry about damage to either fish tank.

I wanted a stand that both looked nice and functioned well. I needed it to hold my 55 gallon on top and a 10 gallon quarantine inside. It also had to accommodate my co2 injection system and xp2 canister. Not to mention everything else a true aquarist would need; food, dechlorinator, timer strip, nets, yadda yadda yadda. The lower tank could also be used as a sump if desired. It was designed to house a 10 gallon, but it will also fit a 20 gallon long, if you can get it in the doors, there is enough area for it.

The following four 55 gallon aquarium stands will all closely fit a standard 55 gallon tank with dimensions 48 L x 13 W x 21 H inches. These stands will also closely fit 45 gallon long tanks with dimensions 48 L x 13 W x 19 H inches, and 40 gallon long tanks with dimensions 48 L x 13 W x 17 H inches. Other than these 3 close fits, the stand can be used for any tank with smaller dimensions than the stand.As a rule of thumb, long tanks are ideally viewed while sitting down and tall, show tanks are ideally viewed when standing. If you purchase an aquarium stand, they will usually follow this idea and match the type of aquarium they are meant for. For example, a standard 55 gallon tank will usually have many long 55 gallon tank stand options that are about 28″ high. The problem is that there are some exceptions, so the height is something to take note of. Also, if you are the DIY type and are building your own aquarium stand, this is something to remember while you come up with a design. If you keep the sit down or stand up rule in mind, you won’t be disappointed.
