Best aquarium stand/shelf/table
A standard aquarium stand is ones you will commonly find in a general pet store. They are typically made of particle board and MDF. Many of these stands are made as cheap as possible. While they can work in a freshwater setup or no sump setups, they will not suit the needs of a saltwater tank or larger freshwater aquarium in the long run. The reason why is because if a sump is installed the stand, the high humidity produced inside the tank from the sump can cause wrapping from the inside of the stand. Furthermore, spills inside of the stand from maintenance can also cause problems. Once the wrapping occurs, the damage cannot be reversed and can compromise the structure of the stand. It is for these reasons, that I do not recommend a standard aquarium stand from general pet stores for a saltwater or larger freshwater setup. There is simply too much investment made into your tank setup for it to be ruined by going cheap on a stand.
A brand name stand is furniture made by high-end manufacturers who specialize in making stands for hobbyist. The best example of these stands would be the stands that you find in . These stands are very well designed with a wood or metal frame (typically aluminum or stainless steel). If they are wood, they will usually be designed with plywood instead of MDF. They will often have features that suit the hobby (Storage shelves, cable ports, etc). These stands are great choices for anyone getting into the hobby.
