Choosing the Right Aquarium Stand - Made Easy
Choosing the right aquarium stand as well as the aquarium canopy is more important than you may think. An aquarium stand is a key piece in your overall aquarium system. The stand is more than just a platform on which to set your aquarium or a decorative after thought. A well-designed stand is functional, housing your equipment and supplies. It should be well built and sturdy. It should be designed to last for many years. If it is a custom-built stand, it should fit your intended space perfectly.
You’ll find cheap stands that are constructed of iron or particle board. Don't be tempted to buy a product of inferior quality. Aquarium stands made of iron are not sturdy and more importantly, they do not conceal your aquarium equipment. Stands made from particle board may look nice with a coat of paint - but they will break down prematurely and cannot stand up to the day-to-day wear and tear that your stand will undoubtedly encounter. At Truvu Aquariums, our stands are constructed of 3/4 inch plywood. The hardware used in construction is made to last. Our craftsmanship is unparalleled in the industry. Our standard sized aquarium stand is 30 inches tall. However, we can certainly make any custom sized stand. All stands have a removable back panel which allows you to install a larger filtration system.
While Truvu Aquariums can assist you with choosing the right aquarium stand, we can also help with your aquarium canopy. A canopy serves many purposes beyond just being a cover for your aquarium. A properly fitted canopy protects your aquatic life, houses your lightning system and keeps water evaporation to a minimum. We offer canopies which are designed to perfectly match the stand. Our standard canopies are 8 inches high. However, here again, we can custom design any canopy size and appearance. Our canopies are visually appealing while giving you the most options to house your lighting. Our canopies are also designed to cover the top 2 inches of your aquarium. We offer this unique design in order to hide the water line. In this way you won’t have light shining out of the aquarium into your field of vision. The light is focused where it should be, on your aquatic life.
