Sorry you took it that way...... You stated (in another thread) you were not going to use your sump, as you were concerned that it would over-flow in your A/V room. That flood would pale in comparison to what would happen when a 150GL tank has a "bust-out".

Having been in this hobby, both professionally & as a hobbyist for going on 43 years, I have seen what happens when people rush this sort of thing. I would hope that you take my advice, & the advice of others, to heart.

"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure".

Again, I hope all goes well for you & I wish you well in your future endeavors.

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

I also measured the water height and it concurs with the level 2" 1/2" all the way around. I've now raised the water level to the one third mark and will keep it there and watch the level before taking the water level to the two thirds level.


I hope you got it sorted out, but I had a suggestion for you, I might would try to shim the tank front to back at the low end with the plywood, and then shim the middle with the thinner plywood. Once this is done you could scab some boards to the the side and end that is elevated using screws and maybe transfer the weight evenly over the length and width of the stand. If you have access to a table saw, you could cut the boards around the base at an angle and with matching finish it should not even be noticeable.
