Advice on bowing 20 gallon lon

I just finished doing my water change and noticed a ~5 mm bow in the center of my 20 gallon long. I recall there being a bow previously but not as much. How concerned should I be?

Here's a photo at the middle:

Is the trim intact? No cracks?
Probably OK.

Yes, trim looks ok and I don't see any cracks.

My 29 does that. Same footprint, just taller. Its been set up for years, so I think your ok. I honestly think it might be the trim, because I'm pretty sure glass doesn't really bow. Though I could be totally wrong.
