Question about Tank & Stand Fitting
I purchased a 26g bowfront starter kit but it didn't come with a stand, so I bought a stand meant for supporting 29 to 37 gallon tanks.
This is my question - the stand is rectangular, while the tank is a bowfront. There is a 3" gap from the side of the tank to the edge of the stand, and about 1" from the front to the edge of the stand. Will this be okay? I haven't been able to find any information regarding whether or not the tank's footprint should identical to the stand, and pretty much all the pictures I've seen online have tanks with matching stands.
I haven't filled this tank with water yet to start cycling because I am worried I'll come home one day to see my place flooded (with a broken tank / equipment).
Thanks so much!
