Two powerheads for Water Movement?

HamSnacks

For the following tank, where would you place let us say 2 Powerheads?
The tank will most likely just be carpeted plants with corydoras and tetras
How do you bring the debris to the overflow?

Dimensions:
72" Wide
30" Deep
24" High

I was thinking 1 powerhead on the bottom left side pointing across, and 1 on the bottom right pointed at an angle up towards the overflow?

Or do you think a Maxspect Gyre system would work better? If so, just 1 or should I have 1 on each end?

If you need more information I can provide pictures as well. Thank you!

Placement would really depend on the placement of your hardscape and plants, as they will affect the flow. Unless you want to spend the money you probably won't need a gyre system as they are mostly intended to get high levels of flow in a reef system.

Will you be running CO2 on this setup? I'd love to see pics.

It also depends on the type of filtration you're going to use for this setup. The placement of the filter/and the filter itself will help us to give options.

Go with the gyre ..I have one in my 180 and 120 and they are great and adjustable like all my other DC equipment ..
