Received my second Canister Filter, where do I place intake and output?

    What I have now the (CF-400) intake hose/valve is in right corner and out put (spray wand) is in the middle. Should I put the new (CF-500) intake valve/hose right next to the other one? or should I put it in the left side of the tank? Where do I put the out put (spray wand)? next to the other one as well in the middle? Please advise?

    Place all intakes and returns as far apart from each other as you can.

    I have mine set up to create a circular flow in the tank. The intakes are in each corner. The spraybar from one is mounted horizontally on the side glass, as close to the front glass as possible. You want that to push the water across the front of the tank. Then the other one is mounted vertically on the back glass, inside the intake. This pushes the water back along the back glass, to the intake of the other filter.
