OK so I'm getting ready to do my WC. and mix the sand. Question... I have 3 canister's on my 90gal how should I set the intakes and returns as far as direction of flow? I have the returns kinda off set 2 going 1way the other going the other. Sarge doesn't have any issues with swimming or being pushed about by the flow. Was just wondering if it mattered.

The bottom of my intakes are about 3' above the sand. The returns is what ever you think will move the water around the most...play with it and see what you think.

My return is smack dab in the middle of my tank, however I really don't like it there and I keep wanting to move it somewhere else, I just felt like having mine in the middle of the tank kept water flow all over.
