Mine is an Oceanic and I really like the look of it. Maybe my "style" (or lack thereof) is the cheesey 70's style, lol. Pics in my gallery.

I agree. I just got a used tank w/ oak stand. Great condition, however the stand was that blond color oak like the late 70's early 80's. I sanded it all down and refinished it in a dark cherry with black hardware to match my mission style furniture. Looks so much better. I also gave it 5 coats of polyerathane for SW protection.
Instead of attracting more attention from the tank, it compliments it.

It also helps to have a awesome tank, so nobody notices the stand

Hi first off I would like to say this is a topic I have been pondering for a little while I am currently thinking about starting a small business custom building aquariums, one thing that has been bothering me is stand and trim desighn I want to make it dark and distressed like it was made from rough cut wood with old world craftsmen ship with like a quarter inch of polyrathane like you see on tables in an old restaurant or a gym floor. I want some opinions on that and if you could post some links to other styles that you like thanks
