Leveling a tank

I'm looking for suggestions on how best to level my tank. My 30 cube has been up and running for over three years now and has always been off by about 3/4" from front to back. Side to side it is level. This sits on the cube stand made by Oceanic for this tank. Obviously my floor is uneven. (we had to shim our china cabinet that the tank is next to when we moved in)

I'm going to be removing all livestock and LR from this tank soon and replacing all the LR with new LR so this would be a good time to finally get this tank level.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Try a car jack too
Thanks for the helpful response. :rolleyes:

Shimming won't compromise the integrity of the flat bottom of the stand? My concern is the uneven distribution of weight the shims may cause.

Once you get it level, then you add more shims to even out the weight distribution.
