    I will see how things go before adding anymore fish don't want to put too much stress on my Betta.

    When you do add more inhabitants add only a few at a time.

    Aquascapes always improve as they age providing they are well maintained.

    My aquarium wasn't level so i put some wedges underneath the side of the tank itself to level it out. Is this safe in the long run?

    As long as the weight of the water on the bottom glass sheet doesn't crack or tear the seams, it would be O.K. in my opinion.

    NO what you have done is taking the weight on those wedges not the full base of the glass.

    This is only my personal opinion over the years I have had two cracked tanks sitting on foam with perfectly flat surfaces.

    Sounds like you have given yourself excellent advice.

    Drain the tank first to reduce the weight, it will be far easier if you can remove the tank first.
