Aquarium support short 1/4"

So my 40 gallon breeder is sitting on this board I got it cut at home depot to be 18" front to back but I just notice the rim makes the tank 18 1/4", so the board is a quarter inch shorter than the rim in the back now, the glass and the board line up but the rim is longer, the front is supported. But the back rim is longer as I mentioned a 1/4" longer but the glass lines up. Its temporary.

Ah, so all is well?

Twisting/pressure on unlevel or not properly supported tank can cause weakness in the seals. So generally a few days wouldn't be a big deal. Glad it is set up!
