Welcome eggi to the forum, glad you joined us :)

Well one way is to use epoxy as in this photo



I'm not a big fan of the epoxy but just about anything will work that will keep the tank just above the cables. This should at least give you a good ideal.

or just cut some cable housing to size for all three I bet it could work, could mesh the tank right aganst it all. Might just want to rerought all the cables

go to walmart they sell a cable kit for around $5.00. you can reroute all the cables so they won't interfere.
