10 gal tank, just filled, already bowing!

Is this normal for 10 gals? I have read yes it is, and no its not. So conflicting! I don't want to get a fish and put him in yet if there is a chance this tank needs to be returned. I just bought it yesterday, and set it up today. Lots of work :( Would hate to do it again, but would hate it more to come home to water everywhere! Any advice about this? Thanks in advance!

Is it glass or plastic? Glass should never bow. Not sure about plastic though... I don't use them, so someone else should weigh in.

It is glass. Standard ten gallon. Not part of a kit. I'm talking to people in a different thread. Some think its normal. It's only about 2/16 of an inch. I mean it makes sense to me why it would but again I don't want a mess and a dead fish! :(

I was apparently confused about your first post....I thought the hood was bowed....not the tank. Like kytkattin said, glass should never bow....if it is I would be worried something is wrong. Plastic on the other hand might bow a little but I wouldn't think very much
