Fluval Spec V overhang

So have a Fluval Spec V that will hang over it's stand by about 1/2 to 3/4 inches front and back. Anything to worry about?

I would. A solid base supporting at least the corners will help keep the tank frame - silicone - together and ensure it doesnt split.

A plywood base for it to sit on would be an alternative solution, and ensure it has an even base.

I've never had any problems with 'Impulse Buying'. They're just animals that I forgot I had planned to get.

Is there a better looking alternative to plywood? If I used acrylic, how thick would it need to be? Its only 5 gallons of water.

How about azek? It’s cellular pvc

For a 5 gallon I wouldn’t necessarily be worried - might be okay, depending on the specifics
