Well, I have a slight problem.
My stand, although very nice looking, has a slight dip in the center. Not even 1 degree. However, When I sit the 60-P on the stand, and look between the center of the tank and the stand, I can see a crack (very thin) of light between the two, and this can only mean the tank isn't resting well on my stand. The edges are likely taking undue stress.
The dip came from using a 20" tank on a stand built for a 24" tank. Normally this isn't a problem, but since the stand uses 4 metal legs for support, it created a point on pressure beween the legs, and caused the fiberboard to bend.
Now, this is a rather small tank (around 17 gallons). Should I be excessively worried about the tank resting on it's edges? Because I am. Bear in mind I have not put anything under the tank yet.
Because of the irregularity in the stand, what should I use as an underlayer? It needs to correct the tank/stand imbalance. Keep in mind I'd like to keep some degree of aesthetics here.
In college....so no aquariums for a while.....
