Reading through the Q&As about the foam it looks like another alternative would be an "L" shaped piece, extending from the bottom to the top, in a corner, an inch or two from the back glass. You can glue pieces of the foam together with aquarium silicone so making the "L" shaped piece would be easy. That lets you use 1/2 of the back for the filter very easily, or 2/3 of the end, and moss, etc. could hide the whole thing.
