You want the best for your beautiful fish, and you may wonder if any aquarium cabinet or stand can be made to hold a fish tank; if the structure is sturdy enough and is able to hold the tank level, it should be acceptable for this use.
Our highly rated aquarium cabinets and fish tank stands are made from solid natural wood such as sustainable Pine, Redwood and Larch.
We are happy to price for more expensive hardwoods such as Ash or Oak on request; we don’t use any MDF for our furniture, we prefer to craft with natural wood for the main body, using high quality water-resistant plywood for the back panel.
Designed by Marc and handcrafted by Marc and our team in Somerset UK using traditional strong jointing techniques and a solid support structure of reinforced wooden braces.

In our Somerset workshop we are happy to make your aquarium cabinet to any size and while as furniture makers we craft the fish tank stand only, we are happy to cater to bespoke requests, such as cut out sections in the back panel and shelving for pipework etc.
Our large double door aquarium cabinets have a bottom and middle shelf with plenty of space to store your filtration apparatus and the cleaning equipment needed to deal with both the dreaded mulm build up and the removal of general fish tank detritus, which can be dangerous to your fish if left in place.
- Is there a quiet location in which to showcase your aquarium?
An environment with a lot of loud music or television sound is no good for your submerged sidekicks and you should keep your fish tank distant from noise sources to avoid them becoming stressed and anxious in their environment.
Another source of possible distress is near an area of high traffic with the tumult of a constant stream of vehicles along with the flashing lights (this is also true of flickering television glare)
- Is your aquarium easily accessible for feeding and maintenance?
How far away is the nearest window? Direct sunlight from a window will encourage algae to grow faster creating an unhealthy home for your fish and increasing the time needed to keep your fish tank clean.
3. Are you are using equipment requiring electrical power? If so you will need to be able to access a plug socket and a ‘drip loop’ is recommended to stop water leaking into the nearby sockets.
4. Fish can be relaxing to watch, so should you have an aquarium set up in a bedroom?
Apparently, this is bad feng shui because continual mobility of water in this space can reduce the sedate energy needed to sleep.
It’s your choice but it is believed that the activity of a fish tank can lead to an agitation of your personal energy.
Although other sources claim that an aquarium can absorb unfavourable energy and yield valuable positive energy in it’s place,
Either way a well-cared for aquarium and its inhabitants can be delightful to contemplate.
