    Child safety tips?

    :) Safety first especially with little ones. Make sure you drain some water out to lighten the weight of the tank so the shims will be nice and tight. When you add the water back in it will compress the stand tight on the shims and onto the floor.

    Child safety tips?

    Fill in any open areas to help stabalise it. All the weight is on the shims and can rock the tank. Pretty much with only a few shims you make a fulcrum and you do not want that.

    Child safety tips?

    What I was saying is that the shims level the tank. but do you have any open areas under the stand that are open? If so fill them with wood and that will help stabalize it more.. So you have as close to 100 percent contact between the cabinet and floor with no gaps. You get what I me.
