The foam forms to the bottom of the tank and the top of the stand. Why wouldn't the tank be sitting on all four corners. If anything the forming to both makes sure the whole bottom of the tank is resting on something

I must have misunderstood your post, forgive me. I thought you foam down covering the entire bottom then put your tank down. Anyway, if you have a open stand with a center brace or a flat surface stand you shouldn't be putting anything between the tank and stand. There both designed to work in a certain fashion by altering that you alter the way the tank will balance and hold water and where the stress points are. Maybe I just read it wrong.

Good luck either way your tank shouldn't uneven.

I the lights are right ontop then I wouldn't advise on no tops. My light fixture sits about 4-5 inches from the surface so I can run no tops.

If your that close you may get splashing and compromise the electric and also the safety of yourself as well as your finned friends.

Well it's a had built stand and I'm no master carpenters so everything up tip doesn't line up exactly so I put the foam under the tank so it'll absorb all the deformitys in the top of the stand
