    hmm ic jollly good one sir, i believe my question was, as stated: is it normal for a tank (plasitc) to bow in the front, with the great ammount of water i would believe so. however it is puzzling to see such a large tank bend. thank u cheerio

    Well thank you Bruce :)

    In that circumstance I would consider that the amount of bendification would be directly proportional to the dimensions of the said vessel .
