Hi All,

I am new to this and am a little concerned as to the leveling of the stand for the aquarium. My tank is a 37 gallon; 30" W x 12" L x 24" H. This is where it is at, does this look alright??? It seems to shift a little between morning and evening. It seems pretty level in the middle of the tank (left to right), just a tad off on the others. Thank you in advance.

If anything don't level the tank but level the stand. Synthetic composite shims can be purchased at home depot or lowes. Put in place. Mark. Take out. Break off and put back in with the piece u break off as a tapper. Use a hammer or rock or wood block. Say a 2x4

Yes the tank is up and running. The level I used is 48" long, I used another level 16" but got different results, didn't look too well. Should I use the 48" level or smaller??? Thank you again!
Oh! I forgot to mentioned that the stand and tank are sitting on carpet.

First one looks dead on.
Second pic looks leaning a bit.
Third and fourth, not as close as pic one.
37g would not be a problem, Iam just being picky.
I like mine dead on as is going to be there forever.
