1/4 an inch isn't a heck of a lot. Its slightly worrying - but not horrible.

However if the tank isn't level, there's more stress on the tank than needs to be there.

Tanks of that size all bow, unless extra thick glass was used. As an example, most 36" long 35s are made with 1/4" glass and they all bow. It is normal.

Ok so just to clarify the bowing is normal and i shouldn't be worried about it? I really couldn't do much as for moving the tank and i see know differences in water line as far as levelling goes. When i first set up the tank it was pretty much level so it could just be my eyes.
