The stands are sized for the 55s they sell. Most 55s made by most aquarium companies are 12x48 and the stands are 12 or 14 inches wide depending on style. 55s in those dimensions are one of the most common tanks sold.

The inside of the cabinet will easily fit any appropriate sized canister made or even two for that sized tank and will also hold all your supplies.

I've owned them for years, no issues. If you manage to tip over a 55 on it's stand, then you're doing something wrong.

Good luck in your search for a really deep 55 stand. You'll probably have to make one.

I use an aqueon classic pine stand for my 90g. They are built well and PLENTY of room under. They didn't have black available so I sanded, primed and painted my stand black, put on new hinges and knobs (to match my others because im real picky on details). It's all open under the cabinet however I built a shelf on one side to store more opposite my canister. It doesn't wobble whatsoever. I have no concern of it tipping given I have 3 cats that think my cichlids are dinner and 2 toddlers. Besides, if u buy it from a LFS and you decide shortly after you don't like it you should be able to return it.
