Took the plunge - skimmer question

Just bought a coralife super skimmer 125 off the internet for my 72gallon tank at home. 8O I cringed as i hit the buy button but I think it will be a good investment.
My question to anyone who has one of these and is using it as a hang on back skimmer, when I put my tank up I put it close to to the wall like three inches close to the wall. How far between the back of the tank and the wall do I need to cram this thing in there, I don't have a sump so that is not a option really. The way the tank is , it is kinda set up in a corner so the back and right sides are against walls.
And if I won't be able to fit it in there how big a of a challenge would it be to move the tank out from the wall. I know I could take the 60lbs of rock I have out and I was planning on doing a 30 or 40% water change to drop my nitrates down, so that would be 20-30 gallons(160-240lbs). How hard/risky is it to move this thing?

its not bad to move a tank just kind of rock/slide it very slowly. as for the skimmer I've never had that one so who knows.
