    Hi guys,

    So i bought a Red Sea Max 250, Im busy setting it up but cant get it level. Its out with about 1mm there is nothing so small that i can put under the cabinet to make it 100% level., Will that make any diffrence ? Can i fill her up ?

    thanks

    the levelness is to help distribute the pressure equally, that little bit should be fine, as long as most of the base in on a sturdy floor you are ok.
    does the tank sit on polystyrene?
