HOT Magnum and Wall Clearance

My main tank's back is about 5" away from the wall. Would I be able to use a HOT Magnum on it?

That is going to be tight. The HOT is about 5" and you have a on/off switch to worry about. Best to look at a cannister filter instead........DC

I plan to use it as an occasional water polishing pump. Because the tank is acrylic, I wouldn't be able to hang the HOT in the front or side.
