Aquarium stability on carpet
Hi, all! My name is Sara and I'm new to this forum. I was hoping I could get some advice and such.
I have a 60 gallon aquarium and stand; I've just moved from a place with tile to a place with carpet and the tank seems to be wobbling from front to back. I haven't filled it yet, because I'm not sure how stable it is. When I have the tank shoved closer to the wall vs. out from the wall, there is about a 3/4" difference from the top of the tank to the bottom of the stand and about a 1/2" change in water level. I have the tank shoved back on the stand, with about a 1/4" left in back and 1 1/4" in the front. Does all (or any) of that make sense?
Down to it: Will my tank be more likely to topple forward once I fill it or is it not enough of a tilt to cause any problem? Is there any other factor I may have missed? Am I safe or just being paranoid, or other? I'll have fish in there that have been with me for almost 6 years; I don't want to lose them.
Thanks so much in advance!
