My 200g tank gets delivered on Monday. I'm trying to figure out how far away from the wall to place it. It will have three feet on each side, and the back will be "against the wall." Obviously I'll leave some space to reach behind, but how much? It is a bottom-drilled tank, and the sump will go in the stand. So I don't think I will need any room in the back for actual equipment.

Atleast enough room to be able to do a little dusting/cleaning between the tank and wall, wire management, retrieve any jumpers. For me thats around 8".

8" sounds about right.
