Aquaclear 50 back of tank clearance

haha, I feel like an idiot...I set up my 55 gallon and have an aquaclear 50 (I realize its a bit low on turnover, but its planted) on the way. Right now I have an old 20 gallon filter running just to turn over the water...and I realize....The tank is about 4" off the wall...FILLED, I totally spaced out on the clearance...does anyone have an aquaclear 50? Could you give me a measurement off the back of the tank...then I can figure out if I need to panic.
