I just notice as i was filling my tank that the self-leveling pad had gotten moved about a 1/4 of an inch on the front right corner--the tank glass is 1/2 inch. It's only on this corner and within 4 inches the pad is back to square with the front of the tank. I'm about half way filling the tank. Should i stop and empty the tank and move the pad or do you think it will be ok like it is?

Picture is from the right side of the tank.

I would drain and refill. It is especially important for rimless tanks that they be supported under 100% of the bottom.

It would also drive me crazy.
thanks. I drained the tank and and pushed the tank forward from the back, which in turn moved that leveling mat forward.

Got my finger tips under the front lip of the tank and my hand braced again the back of the tank and was able to take enough pressure off the mat without moving it back. Problem solved. Of course it was more crap that i explained, but u get the idea. thanks.
 

Are you still ordering livestock or are you going to wait it out?
