Not if it's just a little bit, and the surface it's sitting on is solid. You can put a foam pad of some sort under the tank if you want. That would cushion any vibration I use 2 layers of the under lay for laminate flooring then just trim the excess after the tank is on it. You don't even see it after, it also bridges any flaws in the surface the tank is sitting on.
I think you will be ok though judging from the photo.

I have found a fix! A 2x4 was the perfect width between the stand and the wall...jammed an extra one between the two and now I can jump up and down with very little movement at all. Ill cut a smaller piece that looks less ghetto but for now this works

Shaking can be scary- I've got a 120g that wiggles when people walk by. I hold my breath. Glad you found a solution though!

Now just pain it black and no one will even question it.
Or better still cut one for each side and it will look like part of the design

Ya a 120 would be a bit scarier.
The same type of fix may work on that too.
Just be sure that any pressure points Arab at the ends where it's more solid.

Just talking it out can often stir up ideas, and curb the mental block that all of us get sometimes.
