Hello so i built a plywood stand (Really strong, it has 6 (7 legs if u count back panel) of 0.7 inches (1.8Cm) plywood..
Here's my question:
Lets say after leveling surface of the stand, so it's all level and even..(As much as i can)
There are 0.05 inches (~2mm) small bumps or imperfections on stand surface.
Is it worth ussing rubber mat under framed, rimmed aquarium? To level all the imperfections out?
(Or to be extra safe from aquarium cracking)
Under the tank it self, there will be thin plywood, then the rubber (standart aquarium mat)..
The aquarium is juwel lido 120 <<<<

I would say that it wouldn't hurt to have extra cushion even under a rimmed aquarium. I know the rim is supposed to take the bulk of the weight and help evenly distribute the pressure on the glass. So to me putting a cushion underneath that would only help it even more.

Please someone correct me if I'm wrong.
