Looking good, Your on your way to having a beautiful tank. After some LR and letting it sit until the mini cycle is over you can add a fish or two.

Janey,

One question. Why is the tank not leveled? I see the water line is not even with the top line of the tank? If the weight of the tank is not evenly distributed, you may have problems like a crack or a leak in the future.

you gotta get a level and some pieces of plywood or something to jack up the stand.
I dont think there's a floor in New York thats totally level.

It can be off by a little, but that looks like just less than an inch, which is probably not a good idea.

Janey,
Looking good with the tank. You could use shims under the stand and that would help out a lot. My floor is off by about 1/8th-1/4th of an inch from the front to the back of the tank.

Got a way to go, just take it slow
-Kris
