Don't think it would be a good idea mounting on the side of the stand like that, it is made of composite board so you run the risk of coming home and seeing your tank on the floor! I would level it from the bottom, I used wooden shims like you did on my biocube and never had a problem of it sinking. If it did over the course of a few months just give it another shimmy!

I was thinking that the composite stand would be an issue. I could pre drill and use a nut/bolt with a solid wood backing inside the stand...

That's a lot more work than just using shims though. I still need to take those stupid plastic feet off the stand though to make better use of any shims.

Ok, today I emptied water, cleaned out the stand and removed the feet from the bottom of the stand. Then I got my level out and put in wood shims. I put the tank back on and filled it, violá it's level and stable! Hooray, that should solve my creep problem.

Any recent pics?

Thinking of pulling my biocube out the garage and bringing it back to life. Thanks for sharing.

So I've been unable to get on to MR cause Tapatalk has been acting dumb. I got some fun frags and spread them around my tank where I liked them best and also wherever I could get them situated.

My pictures are cruddy, couldn't find my lens. Point is I plan to grow out these frags and I'm not in a hurry. Next corals I'm saving for are a couple acans and of course more mushrooms for my wall. Then a CLAM! Oh yeah fish too, I've got a list of acceptable fish. I don't plan on getting clowns still but sticking with other nano sized fish. I love Rainfords Gobies and six lines but I'm hoping to encourage fan worm growth so may have to nix the six. I like clown gobies but haven't had success with them for some reason they stopped eating once in my tanks in the past. I may try a royal gamma but I'm going to keep researching and watching for a good deal.
