Out-standing from Elos
Ok I am done with the puns :-) In all seriousness I didn’t know there was this much innovation to be made in the department of stands but this year I have seen a variety of new features. Now Elos, a company normally known for their sleek rimless aquariums, has put together a welded aluminum stand with a level of accessibility and sound dampening that hasn’t been seen before.
First of all, the stands arrive flat packed (saves on shipping) with the front, back and sides already assembled. It’s just a simple matter of bolting the four sides together. Once the frame is assembled the panels actually attach via magnets making it super easy to add and remove them for easy access to the sump. The panels themselves are also quite unique. They have the normal laminated panel but these panels also have insulation added to them to reduce noise! Available in a variety of colors Elos expects these stands to cost roughly double their normal wooden stands.
