I recently got a Perfecto 125g 72"x18"x22" off of craigslist. I sealed the leaks and filled. Overnight, the front facing wall is bowing outward slightly, but enough that it seperated the single center brace from the rear wall. The floor is slightly uneven, favoring the front and left the most. The stand and tank are still very sturdy with no wobbling so I didnt think that would be much of an issue. What should I do about the bowing and lack of center brace? I'm assuming Perfecto wouldnt be very helpful since I have no info on the purchase of the tank.

Hmm.. maybe try draining the tank flipping it around front to back and try filling it again, see what happens.

i dont think i personally would risk a bowing tank. 125 gallons across the floor would suck.

the first thing might be to fix the un-even floor, or maybe even better to find a spot thats flat. a DIY plexiglass strip with nylon screws could replace a center brace.

i tend to agree,unless you can fit a brace yourself,i wouldn't
trust that tank for fish,too much risk.
