Is it an acryllic tank? If so, that's normal. I had the gap for my tank
also. I did not know this when I first had it, so I made a supporting
bar across the middle for it. Now I think that's a mistake, but don't dare
remove it because I don't want it to flex too much. It's been in place
for over 4 years with no problem. But I don't think I needed to do that,
it curves out everywhere anyway.
