I was just measure the space behind of the skimmer as I has one right by me, since only you will be worry about is the backspace behind the tank, that why I said only the back side
But if I was you, I'll move the tank at least 5" from the wall as a safe bet. As when you hook up the skimmer, if the body of the skimmer is right close to the tank, like the space between them is a hair thick, then 3" will put, but any thing other than that not gonna do it
