Ok thanks... I saw a YouTube video on leveling an aquarium, plus advice on this forum and talking to my LFS
, and feel better about leveling this tank stand, and will be using wooden shims.
My BRS order arrived and I'm letting the braided tubing lay out flat along my stairway hand railing to let it straighten out a bit. I will probably put the ends in boiling water so I can bend them so the tubing will "fit" appropriately for my filter sock holder.
Also have to finish building the DIY top I started, which I need to modify because I didn't leave a gap for electrical wires from the powerheads.... D'oh!
