Re: Anyone ever had an un-level tank before?

Ah, so it's a 'Princess and the Pea' sort of thing, more than a leveling sort of thing. I've noticed that my first 125 is no longer level. I would say there's about a 1/4 inch difference in the water level from one end to the other. (The tank's 6' long) I hate to take it down completely and I don't know how big a concern this is. My guess would be that when I spilled a bunch of water at the (now) low end of the tank (The No-spill Clean-and-Fill motto for the Python doesn't apply to me, I almost always manage to make a spill of some kind anyway...) it allowed the carpet and/or pad under the stand at that end to become more compressed.
