New tank

Hi

I have just installed this tank it is a 230 litre tank when I set it up it was level and after I have put the water in it has a slight lean back to front.

I am just wanting to know if this is ok or do I need to shim it?

Any advice would be great?

As long as the tank is fully supported on its base, ie the cabinet isnt twisted then it should be ok. Shimming the cabinet would be the best option however, especially if you have concerns.

Drain it down and shim the front legs of the stand.

I lost an entire 55 gallon setup because of an uneven stand.
