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.

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 :D

Hey Josh, my floors are perfectly level. But then again i have concrete slabs for floors.

Shims would be ok but try to shim the entire side of the tank and not just certain points because it the shims get wet and settle you are back to square one.
