    Advice needed

    I have the rough stand for a 75 gallon built. I placed it temporarily where it will go to visualise the finished setup and discovered that I have a gap in places, enough to slide a sheet of paper through, but not much more. I want to know if I add a thin plywood top and a thin sheet of foam would this be wise? It seems to me that this isn't a huge issue, but maybe it is. Is this gap enough to cause a breaking glass or leaking issue?
    EDIT: no idea why that photo is upside down

    With a trimmed tank as show it will compress and take up that gap, no worries if it's only paper thin...
