New tank bowed after adding water
Hi all. New to the forum. I've had a few tanks in the past so maybe I'm just being paranoid. I recently got a 29 gallon tank off craigslist. I checked and it was in good condition with no leaks. After I filled it completely I noticed it expanded a little. (Shows when lid is on and using a level on front glass) how much if any should a tank expand when full?? I'd hate to wake up with a wet floor.
A little flex is probably normal, but a couple of quick questions. I assume the tank does not have a center top brace (they're usually reserved for bigger tanks). Is the tank glass and not acrylic? Is the back bowing slightly too, or just the front? Does the top plastic frame show any evidence of a hairline crack?
