Concerns about Leveling

I used a mat underneath my 65 gallon tank, and at the time thought that it would help. But I'm worried I messed up. I put a bead of hot glue underneath the tank's frame to attach it to the mat (a rooftop cargo mat from Wally World) and am starting to get paranoid about uneven weight distribution. Does anyone have thoughts on this? The tank is level, as is the stand, but I still worry a little bit about it.

You glued what exactly? The entire perimeter or just corners?

It was just a bead here and there along perimeter of the frame. And it does have a rim, and a pad.

Thatís what Iím trying to figure out. If I should break it down or if the frame and the pad will compensate
