Looking for feedback on getting my stand top flat!
I figured this deserved a new thread since the topic has changed. I am trying to get my tank stand top as flat as possible and have come up with three options. I would love to hear some feedback on what others would do. Keep in mind that my tank is a rimmed 90 gallon glass tank and the stand is way overbuilt with 2x4s and a 3/4" plywood top. The top has imperfections like most pieces of plywood do. The stand and aquarium is level to the floor, there are some areas where the trim does not meet the plywood and I can slide paper underneath.
Stand-->3/4" plywood-->spongy foam 1/2"(compresses a lot)--> 1/4" plywood (flat)--> aquarium
Stand-->3/4" plywood-->thin foam 1/4"(compresses a lot)--> 1/4" plywood (flat)--> aquarium
Stand-->3/4" plywood-->polystyrene rigid foam 1/2"(very little compression--> 1/4" plywood (flat)--> aquarium
