Tank not level

Hi guys, I just added some water to my new acrylic tank. The water level shows the tank leaning forward a little bit water level has 5mm difference exactly and also to the right by 5mm. Is that ok, or do I need to add more shims?

Thanks for the help

I over shimmed it. I'll have to remove the water and start over.

I added the shims before the water, bad idea. Especially over a rug.
Good thing it was only tap water. I was trying to level without the water.
