90g Reef flow help?

Here is my new 90g reef-

I'm not sure where to put the powerheads for optimal flow. What do you guys recommend? I have
1x WP-25
1x 700 GPH
1x 1300 GPH

I also have an extra 1300 gph pump if needed.
Thanks for answering!

10g Planted

I prefer to place them to get random flow. Like bouncing them off the walls.

Try putting both 1300s on either side pointing towards each other and slightly up to create turbulence and surface agitation? I have two 800gph pumps on either side of my 55 and it seems to be perfect Also, check out flow requirements online depending on what your livestock requires. Good luck!
