Hey Everyone,
It has been a while since I sold my reef tank I am getting back into the hobby. I am finishing up details on getting a reef ready 150 gal tank and stand. I am going to start looking at the different equipment I need this week. I am curious if anyone has had issues with floor leveling and some solutions. I would love suggestions on equipment and if anyone has any ideas for my floor issue.

Alright update today looks like I am going for the 150 gal aqueon and the stand I’m still working out the details on that. I can buy an aqueon pine stand from the shop but I’m currently looking at other options. Does anyone have any suggestions?

There's wooden shims. I kick-tap them all in a row, mark their distance under and number in order, cut, color, and put back in a row under the stand. I've also done layers of plastic cutouts for feet that arnt adjustable.
Thanks I actually spoke to him about that today. I was concerned but he said shim it. Shouldn’t be an issue anymore.

Hey Everyone,
My update today looks like I’m just going to accept the stand and tank. It’s just easier for the vendor to bring both pieces and less for me to worry about. I’m going to clean up the the area and take pictures. Next up figuring out equipment and also water station.

Hey Guys,
My guy gets back on Tuesday and the order for the tank will be placed. I am now looking into sumps and I have seen these new roller filters. Is anyone running them and do you feel that they are better then the socks?
