My light fixture runs the lenght of my tank and is still on mounting legs, so I opnly havea bout 4" of clearance to the bottom of the fixture as you can see below. I'm still waiting for my nephew to help me hang this thing.
Wow... you've got a beautiful tank...
If you set up the fan standing straight up, then, it's 5.5 inches in height. But I have my fans tilted at an angle, so the height measure just over 4 inches. (see picture) so, I think you can angle it even more to fit in the 4" gap you have.
I've bought several of these fans... the oldest one is still running strong almost 2 years after I first installed it. (i hook the fans to a timer... running about 4 hrs straight each time)
