Hi, just built the stand for my Eheim Vivaline 126 and put in position.

The tops level, the floor isn't.

It has 6 feet on the tank,. the middle ones you can slide a piece of printer paper underneath and it's just touching, but slides around easily.

Whats the best thing to shim this sort of minute gap please?

Haven't yet put tank on stand

Thanks

Is it possible to swap out the feet for adjustable ones? Would help in the future if one day it needs to be moved to somewhere else with uneven floors.

wood shims can be perchest from a hardware store however you look pretty handy yourself. All they are are thin wedges with a wafer thin side and one that's about 1/8 of an inch on the other. just slide one in from each side till they're snug and the water wait will finish it off. just make sure you shim both the front and back of the stand.
