Hob filter and tank question

I I got my hob filters in today but they won't go over the side of the tanks.. It looks like I'm going to have ti cut the black trim a Lil. It's the lip that runs the inside of the tank. Will that be ok?

Hello Gilley...

I wouldn't make any change to the tank. It could affect it's stability. Maybe you need to go with a larger or different filter. Have you tried Hagen AquaClear?

I was thinking that but then again you do see people take the trim off the tank and have rimless tanks.
