Uneven floor

Hey all,

Planning to set up a few vivariums around my room. I am mainly concerned about the flooring, which in my [censored][censored][censored][censored]ty place isn't exactly straight ( Some bumps/dents along the floor).


If the tanks would prob sit around with 1/10th of the water it could carry, and these are rimmed tanks, think any issues could come from this?

Personnaly, I use a good solid stand and shim it so that the tank is level. My floors aren't all level, but it has worked extremely well so far (2 individual 55s and a stand with a 75 on top, and a 55 on bottom).

In my case, shims makes things awkward. Not the best solution for me.
