David Netto recommends for longevity purposes you find a corner aquarium with stand that's fashioned out of moisture-resistant and corrosion-proof materials. For example, you might opt for a stand that's made out of aluminium alloy because it's high strength and durable and rust-proof. A strong plastic or acrylic base makes another good option because it's immediately water-resistant and not likely to warp over time. You'll also find lots of composite and hardwood options that are well made and can be finished with a special veneer that allows them to stand up to moisture. There are also metal or iron options that are often decoratively made but also hardwearing. Most tanks are fashioned out of tempered transparent glass or heavy-duty acrylic that's capable of holding large amounts of fresh or salt water.
Interior designer, Amber Lewis notes that the beauty of a corner aquarium with stand is that they're built in a way that allows them to come as a single unit that can fit perfectly in the corner of your home space. Oftentimes, the base of a corner aquarium with a stand is hardwearing, strong, and rectangular in shape so that it's equipped to hold a fish tank of a similar shape. The key thing to remember is that the aquarium itself needs level and full bottom support from the stand, so it needs to be built to hold up against the stress of a water-filled glass or acrylic tank. The base may also be constructed to house additional fish tank equipment that's needed. It's good to find a glass or acrylic tank constructed with a built-in canopy that easily opens up for feeding or cleaning.
Shawn Henderson recommends that when picking out your corner aquarium with stand you not only opt for an option that fits well in your space but one that also offers some extras that will make attending to your fish tank easier. You could opt for a corner aquarium with a stand that comes with built-in LED lights that change colors and allow you to fully scope out your fish. You can also find a variety of corner aquariums with stands that come with a bottom cupboard or storage space that holds the pump and filtering system for the aquarium. There may be aquariums and stands that also come with other equipment that you'll need such as various water valves and piping. And depending on what kind of fish and marine life you have, it can be useful to get a corner aquarium with stand that comes with built-in heating.
