Tank not fully leveled 🤨😵

Recommended Posts

So I decided to go ahead and fill up my reefer 170 over the weekend with just water to check for leaks and make sure my pump works. I thought the tank was leveled but the water line tells me differently (note to self the iPhone level is not that good) my question is do I need to worry about anything? Here are the measurements from the water line to the top of the glass.

It's probably alright.  However, I like to use plastic shims (which don't rot) to level the stand.

I would probably shim a tank that size to get it closer to level, however if a level shows it as plummed-out I'm not sure how much I'd panic over taking a tape to water-levels either. The resulting water-level changes from relatively-small differences in angles can be deceptive and you may find that even a thin shim will just cause the other side to be as or more off than you currently are.

I use plastic or wood shims to level my tanks.
