It's uneven floor.
Yes, I know you're not supposed to put a wedge directly underneath the tank. I meant a wedge under the tank stand on the floor.
I did do a bit of research before posting here about it, however the cases I read about were about tanks that were obviously uneven, by about 1/4 of an inch. My tank is literally only uneven by a couple millimeters (Like 2-3 millimeters?)
I heard that high density insulation foam helps ease the stress of the weight, so I have a piece in between my tank and my tank stand, so I was wondering if a couple millimeters is still something to worry about or should I fix it?
