That is just it, the tank itself and the stand is level to the floor. It is the top of the stand, the sheet of plywood that has some minor imperfections that is causing me to be able to slide up to a quarter width under the one corner (appx 1/16th of an inch)

Best news of the day so far, my insurance company will cover the water damage as a result of water from the aquarium. They will just not cover a "slow" leak, but a break, they will. Of course I want it in writing and to see the fine print, but this slightly puts me at ease
