I'm trying to level my first DIY stand and I can't get the level dead center. I've also double checked to make sure the stand is square and so far this is the best I can get. I'm most likely overthinking this but I'd like to get a few extra opinions.
Other details: 40G Breeder [rimmed], on...
A photo of how far the paper goes into the corner.
I placed shims under 1/2in plywood and It was level with the corners touching the stand a bit further back but I needed to sand the wood filler down to hide the edge and now my paper goes a bit further into the corner.
I'm I still good?
On 3 corners my plywood is not meeting with the stand, there is space to move a card around in the middle between two corners as well.
There is also a slight wobble in the base of the tank.
Can I shim between the stand and the plywood and the floor and base of the stand?
I'm trying to find the...
Last night I was building a stand for a 40b and this morning I noticed a few issues. On Two of the main leg post I drilled the screws a little too close to the edge and on the bottom length portion one screw cracked the wood. I'm going to be added 3/4 in. Plywood to the top.
I added pics for...
So far the only big box store options are the Brooklyn Metal Stand & Aquatic Fundamentals 50/65 gallon upright stand. I'm really leaning towards the Aquatic Fundamentals one so I can hide my CO2 and canister in the closed cabinet. I just unsure of how stable it is. It does have some good reviews...

I'm planning to stock chilli rasboras or some other nano fish and I'm trying to come up with ideas to stop them from getting sucked into the skimmer. So far I've come up with using a shower pouf netting with a zip tie keeping it in place. But i worried that the mesh holes are still to large.
Looking for something fast growing and that adds to the jungle look I'm going for.
Currently have Crypt Sri Lanka and balansae in the background, But I'm not sure if I like it and want something that grows taller and quicker.
Side Question: Anyone know how i can stop the co2 bubbles for...
One of my discus has started looking and behaving off for the past 3 days. He is still eating a little but mostly stays hidden.
He's been turning darker, clamped fins, patchy coloration, leaning slightly to the side, and only using one pectoral fin.
He's the smallest of the 3 that i have and has...
I recently brought 4 juvie Discus to go in my 55g [will be upgraded to 75g during the next petco sale], I also have 22 serpae tetras hoping a large group would keep them calmer. They haven't show that much aggression to the discus other than the first 5min introduction to the tank and after that...

I'd prefer the Angel, but I'm concerned with fin nipping.
Would a large group...
I'm looking for a 1-3 large centerpeice fish that would work with serpaes, I was thinking maybe 1-2 blue gourami or a group of boesemani rainbows.
My current stock is 10 Serpae tetras, 4 Peppered cories, and two nerites.
Also planned on increasing the number of serpaes to 20-25, 8-10 peppered...
Looking for suggestions for my 55g that should be done cycling soon.
The goal is angelfish, dwarf neon rainbowfish and some kind of bottom cleanup crew.
I just don't know how many of each.
I'm also open to it being a species only tank with just angels if that could work or different types that...
I'm planning to rescape my 20h, currently i have fluval stratum that been in the tank for over a year.
I like fluval stratum even with it being inert, It's just anytime i rearrange plants it's a cloudy mess.
So, can i just cap the stratum without it eventually falling down or just switch to...

My city just lifted their boil advisory after two weeks and i'm trying to figure out how long i should wait before do a water change. I'm worried about a large abnormal amount of chlorine and giving that time to kill off any parasite & etc.
My tanks haven't had any water changes in that time...
I need some advice on setting up my planned aquascape.
This tank is going to be for 1 angel, 8-10 neon dwarf rainbowfish, 8-10 albino corydoras & amano shrimps.
So far the plan is to use eco complete or cheap gravel in media bags on one side to create a slope, add a 1-2in layer of organic soil...
