Is the tank shimmed on the stand? If it is, you'll probably end up with a 55 gallon cleanup.

is the tank underneath going to be a seperate aquarium, or will you connect the two (and waterproof the top of the bottom one).

What's the white on the bottom right corner of the tank, and will that be there once the water is in the tank... if so then it will cause some structural stability problems.

If you need to shim the tank to make it level, you need to shim it under the legs of the stand, not under the tank rim. That's what Roybot was asking/pointing out...
