There is an inch and a half gap between the top rear of the tank and the back of the hood, to allow wiring and CO2 tubes to come out. Will post a photo when I get back home on sunday.

An inch and a half is not very much at all. Especially when there is CO2 involved. The degassing CO2 will fill the canopy due to lack of air flow causing a complete lack of air exchange. You will really need to keep an eye out on your fish for any potential issues. I would honestly look at adding a computer fan for more air flow if you don't want to cut the opening any larger.

No fish in the tank either just 14 RCS so not not a massive O2 consumption, do you still think it would be necesary?
