Heres a couple of pictures of my tank with 20% water in it....is this too unlevel? THe tanks measurement from the bottom of the wall and top is different by 1/4 inch. Just want to know if its unsafe and if I need to do something about it. Im probably just freaking out for no reason.

have u tried using the trick of laying foam under the tank? i think prolly half inch works. The water will level itself out. Iv seen quite a few people that use this method.

IMO that is fine... Ive had tanks off .5" from side to side before because of a shitty floor and they were fine for well over a year with no issues.

I filled it halfway with water and its still the same...the water level in the front is 1/16" difference. Im sure im just overthinking it but is this bad? Will it be ok and not cause a fracture in the tanks glass. Im just worried about waking up to a swimming pool in my living room. Thanks for the help

Yea, I was just leasing an apt. for a year, now I live in a pretty nice duplex, the manager for it actually helped me move two of my tanks into the house and gave me a tank someone left at one of the other houses he manages.

you are fine .. if you are still worried you could put a wood shim under it until it is level the cut the shim flush. i have found that a tank will be the same empty as it is full most of the time. what i am saying is if it is within the level lines it will still be there after it is full
