Read through my thread...it can happen again...make sure that your stand is on a flat surface and is perfectly level and that the tank is sitting flat on the top of the stand

I don't want to put undue stress on anyone but after 2 tanks cracking on me in less then a month I want everyone to pay close attention to what their stand is doing.

Most people forget how important a good foundation is, especially when supporting a lot of weight...
