Juwel Rio 240 - Gap in the corner

Hi Guys,

I bought a "NEW" Juwel Rio 240 (plastic framed) comes with complete set (cabinet included), I built the cabinet then I put the tank on top.
I noticed there is a gap between the cabinet and the tank itself (on the "whole" left side - right side is fine).

I am getting 2 different responses, some say it is normally fine as it has the plastic frame around it and some say "no" due to each corner need to touch the table.

I would like to put Styrofoam in between to distribute the weight evenly however Juwel against (see below)
1. Should I place anything between the Aquarium and cabinet?
NO. The JUWEL aquarium includes a safety base frame which ensures an even distribution of the weight. The use of any support material between the aquarium and cabinet will invalidate your guarantee.

Thanks in advance,

Make sure the cabinet stand is level before putting the tank on.
