Foam not even

Hi there,

We are concerned because the foam built into our four foot, 200 litre fish tank is much more compressed at the corners and not touching the cabinet, which is level.

We ordered this https://www.aquariumproducts.com.au/catalogue_products.php?prodID=7810&catID=48 and we were thinking about taking the built in foam out and putting the levelling mat under it, or should we just put the mat under the existing foam?

    Looks like the tank has been rocked on the corners so it could be moved resulting in the foam being compressed. I would be looking at replacing it between the tank and stand. A piece of gravel between the tank and the stand can result in the base fracturing, not a good look.

    Cheers,

    Bob

    Thanks Bob!

    Do you think the mat we are looking at will do the job? https://www.aquariumproducts.com.au/catalogue_products.php?prodID=7810&catID=48

    Not sure that you could cut the 24 x 24 to cover the base of your aquarium, a 4' tank is usually more than 12' wide. The 48 x 24 would be my preferred option as you are then only needing to trim the excess.

    I think the product should do the job for you and as mentioned previously, I would have it between tank and stand.

    Cheers,

    Bob
