My big tank has gaps through the polystyrene. I'm not worried. It's been sat a year, still not broken! One tank just has three little strips supporting the middle area, it's ok. The tank above that is made up from several 2" strips complete with gaps.

Like they say, if it's level, no problem. Just take a look at a Fluval edge!
