How to Properly Level My 150G

1719 Views 6 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  DemasoniLover
Alright so my 150G is in my basement on thin carpet and it is slightly out of balance (the bubble on the level is just touching a line).

So I leveled it out with a few pieces of folded cardboard under the stand and it is now level and stays level when full.

Is this a safe way to level it out or will this be a problem?

I'm having visions of stress cracks in the stand where the pieces of cardboard are and I don't want to take any chances.

Well the stand does not have legs it runs flush with the floor for the whole footprint.

Maybe a thin book or something?

That's actually my concern - that once you start shimming it the stand would have a higher pressure near the shim and would warp and/or crack over time.

Is this possible even with very minimal shimming?
