So, this stand I bought it lopsided. This is one of the reasons why the ADA 60-P #2 tank is slightly bowing. I also think that part of my floor might not be 100% level.
The water level is a 1/2 inch lower on the back right side than the front left.
Naturally, this makes me VERY nervous. Sure, in reality, nothing will probably happen. It's a good quality tank, and we are only talking 18 gallons of water here. But with 50 shrimp, 12 nice dwarf cories, a $100 tank, a $50 light, and hardwood floors I have reason to worry. Murphy's Law.
Anyway, how do I go about shoring it up? My dad keeps talking about "shims". I'm not sure what exactly they are.
Anyone else with a similar experience want to provide some insight?
In college....so no aquariums for a while.....
