Is this bad?
I noticed something odd with the front of tank, there seems to be some cracks? I'm not exactly sure what they are, they are really hard to see unless you get on the floor and look straight up as if looking at the light. Should I be concerned about this? I've been keeping an eye on it and I think it might have spread a tiny bit since I re-set up my tank. I'm worried about a tank failure because when I was a teenager, my dad INSISTED on building me an aquarium stand and it was the worst thing in the world. It wasn't level and a third of my tank didn't even sit on the stand, but I wasn't allowed to not use the stand and my dad wouldn't let me make it level (he took me wanting to fix it as an insult) so I'm thinking that the damn stand might have broken my tank because the "cracks" are right about where there was a 1/4" gap between my tank and that stand. Here's the best picture I could get:
Is there a way to fix this? Is my tank doomed? It's an acrylic aquarium.
The stand I'm using now IS built for aquariums and is perfectly level.
