Re: [APD] aquarium stand level
If you have a spot where one stand leg doesn't touch, and
the others do, with just a little upward pressure onthe
stand sometimes you can slide in cards until they won't
slide in any more. The difference between legs will only
be the thickness of a playing card, give or take -- greatly
I'd be interested to hear how far out of level the
manufacturers will say a tank can safely be. Genrally they
prescribe "level" and that's it.
