Tanks

Is it normal for a large acrilic tank to bow in the front by the water preacher in side the tank

Yes this is from the use of acyrlic that is to thin. No major problems but it looks bad. Also bad bracing can also cause this.

Is your tank level? Does the tank have a fully open top?

A small bow in the front, is normal. Tank will also bow in back opening, where HOB
filter would be.
