I leave about a foot from the wall so I can see back and get back there a little back there if needed.

Mine sits diagonal in the corner so I can view all three sides but still have room behind the tank in case I need to get to anything.

I only use HOB filters but I do not like too much space between wall and tank so I try to put it to near the wall as close as possible.
