Placement looks good, so does the tank!

You're in good shape...But, I'd make one more suggestion...I'd add these Hydors to your Maxijet powerheads. I have one on a MJ1200 and I really think they're excellent. The kind of flow they cause is superior to the intense flow that the Maxijets and other powerheads create. It's more natural for the coral and I think it benefits them. They are good for the coral, aren't expensive and they're reliable. That's a combination you don't come across that often in reef-keeping.

Oh, sorry...I meant to put some links in there for you...they go on the output of the powerhead and mechanically (from gears inside and the force of the water going through, most likely) they go around and make a broader flow of water so it isn't a constant narrow intense stream of water. I watch the polyps on one of my Pagoda corals when the flow goes around and it's very natural looking and since I placed it near that coral, there's better polyp extention from it. It's effects are pretty broad and if you put one on each of those two Maxijet 1200's that you have on the tank I think you'd have some very fine flow in the tank.

Here are two links that you can take a look at for places through which you can get them but they are widely available now:
