    LOL, I know what you mean. It'll keep you safe that's for sure. Well I've been where you are so any questions just ask. I've helped a couple people through the same type of predicament, and in both cases they opted to get the ro unit, after some apprehension about adding GH etc etc they ultimately felt a huge relief. I've already done all the measurements so the hard part is finding GH booster. I dunno maybe garuf can tell you where to find some there, or else Seachem Equlibrium is pretty much the same stuff.

    dont worry too much about using the clips they seem to be a bit of overkill another option would be to look at changing the pipes themselves to eheim ones if they will fit the connections (not sure as i dont use fluval filters) but you should be able to buy a small length from your LFS or you can ask them? as their U pipe fitting would work for you (also if you do drill the cabinet you will need to paint or cover the inside of the rear triangle otherwise you will be able to see all the pipework. i would not mess with the tank lid it may be possible to remove it but it may cost you a lot of money to reinforce the top with braces and also the potential damage from a tank failure (it may only be 110Ltr or so but it can do a hel of a lot of damage)
    hope this helps
    OHH just had a thought
    if access is the problem you can get a set of planting tongs ask your LFS (no more wet elbows)

    Hi Amberskye have you considered drilling away the cabinet under the open triangle in the back of your tank to allow access for your pipe work and power cables.
    it may work for you but i cant tell how close the cabinet edeges are (are they directly inline with the glass if so then it may be possible) if it is to mark the area tape a marker to a rod and mark out the area on the cabinet top and then drill two holes so they overlap each other using a hole saw the end result would be an oval Hole to run pipes through. word of warning measure twice and cut once
