135 gallon tank unlevel due to floor

I just set up my 6 foot long, 135 gallon tank and it is off by one-quarter of an inch lengthwise. The floor is also off by the same amount. I don't know if I should just "let it be" or empty out the tank and put shims under the end of the stand. The stand is very solid. Does anyone have any experience with such a problem?
