Spent 1 hour putting together the stand. I got the stand from Petco website, and the tank (40B) from local Petco $1/G sale going on now.

:help:
Question: The floor is not very flat. Wood got little cups. I'm thinking of putting a layer of cushion between the stand and the floor. What shall I use? Where can I get it? Anyone doing the same thing, please shed a little light on this one.

Thanks a lot folks.

Don't use a cushion between the stand and the floor! That would be like a spring, making the tank move back and forth and sloshing water. Instead, just get some wood veneer and sandwitch pieces together to get shims for at least 6 places under the stand to level it. I have tried many ways to make shims, and the wood veneer method has worked better than any other, by far.
