The Aquatic Fundamentals 55 gallon upright stand is made out of dense fiberboard. This material ensures that the whole stand supports your fish tank instead of just corners.

The fasteners used in the stand are metal. The metal-to-metal locking cam fasteners are much sturdier and reliable than traditional wood screws found in lower quality stands.
