That should give you the clearance you need for that new filter. That hot knife worked like a charm hey?

Yeah it did but the xacto knife part wasnt getting hot enough at the tip. I basically had to saw it with the blade and the blade hit the water a few times an sizzled but I don't think it hurt anything

That's good. Just a suggestion, make sure you have your rock placed just how you want it before putting your fish in. Mixing the sand up can lead to nitrate spikes. I know I moved mine around a few times before I was happy with it. Just a thought.
