HOB for Rimless tank - too loose?

3824 6
Hi there! I recently ordered an AquaClear 50 Power Filter HOB to supplement filtration on a 90P heavily planted tank. The HOB was very loose and did not sit properly as the tank is rimless (ADA). It leaned back towards the wall and in no form to safely operate.

(1) Does anyone have this experience?

(2) Are there anyone using a HOB that works fine on a rimless tank? E.g., Marineland Penguin / Emperor?

Many thanks.

Is this with the black foot installed that rides against the tank to keep it level?

Some interior parts and the intake arrived damaged (via Amazon) so I didn't spend much time with it. I notice that the package should contain a leveling device (1). That will do the trick?

That’s usually what does it. Sometimes they fit a little loose, but a layer or two of electrical tape fixes it. In the interim you could follow the above advice and put something between the filter and the tank to keep it level.
