trim trouble

Before I even fill up the 90 gallon I have I noticed the trim was too tight for the tank so when I set it in place it slightly seperated on both sides. The openings are only on top of trim corner not sides.Should I just puts some wood glue in the crack I don't think trim gives much support. Thanks ahead of time.

The trim is actually a key structural component of the tank. It helps hold the panes together. As to what to do, I don't want to say just dumping glue in will fix it, as 90gal of water on the floor would be a disaster . It would most likely be fine, but the risk outweighs the cost of just getting a tank I had confidence in. Just my 2 cents.

Is that the trim on the stand or the tank itself

If its the stand trim it's not structural at all you could leave it or fill it with wood filler it's just for looks and it helps center tank on stand. all support is from under the tank

I agree, that is a good course of action. Get a ruling from them on their product.

What about bracing the corners with angle iron?

See how its just the top part stretching if I lift tank it goes back to norm. Nothing is coming off, trim is not loose at all
