Hi, I've been testing the seals on my new 14 gallon aqueon rimless cube, and it came with the mat which I definitely used immediately. With the tank full of water and otherwise empty, I can see all of the hotspots from the tiles on my counter top. I'm concerned that the mat may not be taking up enough of the pressure from these and I'm wondering if I should get a piece of thin plywood to put beneath?

The picture shown below has the dark spots clearly visible where the edge or side of a tile is higher than the other and it's pressing up into the mat beneath. The tank is currently full in that picture. Thoughts?

Get a piece of polystyrene foam that is 1/2 inch thick and stick it under the tank. The foam should be big enough to completely cover the base of the tank.
