level tank ????

Got my 150 gal set up and it is perfectly level from side to side. The front to back is pretty level (level enough that the bubble is still in between the lines) but is is a little off. How worried should I be with this? I think the problem is that the back of the tank stand is resting on some sort of strip under the carpet.

You mean the carpet install strip? I've seen those b4. They're usually a strip of thin plywood with small nails embedded to snag the edge of the carpet and keep it up close to the wall. You should probably move the tank out and inch or inch and a half and that should clear it. All that weight from a 150g probably would just squish it down but better safe than sorry.

I"d move it around till you find a level sport too. I'd personally not wanna try what will happen if a 150g will push against 1 side of the tank and the glass breaks under that pressure, that'd be a serious mess.

It's about 1/16 of an inch off from front to back. I'm going to try and move it out just a bit to see what happens.
I have to do 100% water change because the ammonia I bought was apparently not pure, like what it said on the bottle. There were no ingredients listed but it said "pure" on the front. Suds galore out of my sump so I hand washed each bio ball (800 - 1000) and it still was sudsing. Draining the water now. After, I'll try and move the stand & tank forward a little.
