It is done. I put the base (30 year old teakwood box) on thick gym mat). The plan backfired. It seems it is almost impossible to have a 100% levelled base. Overall I am pleased with the build. Tank is still small for cichlids though.

Removed the foam pads from under the base. Levelling done to the best I can. The level is 24" long.

It doesn't get much more level than that (y)
I tend to be extremely anal when it comes to levelling. All my levels are Stabila's and super accurate, so can be a little OCD trying to find "perfect".
On my 6' tank I actually dropped the water level so I could see the water line. Waited for it to be completely still and used a self levelling laser.

Laser! Woah!
Thx. I measured this pressing the level with force and the tank was full. The base is 23" wide 40" long. I can't do much on this but I think I am fine. The level itself is 24" long.
