the floor is off by 1/4 " over the 18 inches of the tank (90 bow). the stand, appears to rely on the fact that the tank makes contact with stand around the entire perimeter,to bare the load and distribute the weight, if this was a 4 legged stand ( made of the same material ) it would surly collapse. the riser frame is a good idea, but again... the weight distribution is low. the only proper way to shim this tank is grade the sides from 0-1/4 " with two shims, and than a strip 1/4" the length. contact and weight distribution is integral in the design of the stand. tomorrow i will check the Frame work below if i can. maybe try and get some schematics.
