Fluval Spec V... remove plastic base- possible?

I picked up my Spec used... the black plastic base- can it come off? Without damaging the glass/seals?

I emptied it last night to try and didn't have luck. But I just hate it and want if off if at all feasible.

I had one for a while - it's temporarily defunct now.

Personally speaking, I would have small leaks when I attempted to move the tank when it was full by just sliding it. That was dumb, but it led me to believe that the base needs to stay on.

Just by 2 cents!

Ok thanks, darn. No leaking on this one so far.
It really just feels like it should slip off but.... definitely won't try unless others have had success...
