AK: Our floors are heart pine, foundation are on "real 4 x 12s". This area was used for managers housing at an old lumber mill, 1880's - 1940's. It and my shed have "real wood" I will tell you , "real" 2x4 look huge compared to today's brand.
OK, I got it fixed, thanks for your consideration.
I measured, after posting and I was down 1 1/16 at 48 inches.
I went out to the table saw, ripped two 48 inch 2x4s from 0 to 1 1/16, and ripped another for the end.
Came in drained tank, took out the heavy Malaysian driftwood, moved small kitchen table beside tank stand, and the four of us, wife and 17 and 19 year old daughters, moved tank to table, flipped stand, nailed on the two 48" pieces on the bottom sides, nailed on the end, flipped stand, put tank back on stand, put in driftwood, refilled to one third full, conditioned water, and tank is PERFECTLY LEVEL NOW, with full support around the bottom of the tank.
Costs: Wife not speaking, 17 year old in room with doom and gloom music blaring, door shut, and 19 year old in shower, to I am sure, use all hot water.
Assessment: Situation normal. Mission Accomplished.
