My livingroom floor is uneven

So i just moved in to my new apartment and noticed that my tank is at a slant.... I just bought a new tank and was wondering if anyone has any ideas on how to level the tank before i swap out everything from my old tank to this new one? My current tank has a canopy so you cant really see it, but my new tank doesnt have a canopy and will be really visiable.

Use shims under the stand to level it.

More importantly is making sure you don't put stress on the tank because it's uneven. Use shims like stated above and make sure it's level before you fill it. What size tank are you setting up anyway?

You don't want to wake up some morning to a room full of dead fish and water.

Oh and welcome to the forum

You must put bottom support for your aquarium so that aquarium water will be horizontally level...
