Just play with the angles, you'd be surprised how moving one a little bit can make a difference. i also wouldnt sweat it until you get some rock in there, that will totally change the flow in the tank.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Oh i bet the rock really does change the flow.

We angled it differently then before
One pointed up to the surface, another at the glass downwards

Once you get the rock in you will have to readjust anyways so dont worry about it. You worry too much LOL

some of my tanks have both pointing at the front glass and each others flow, some have one going up and one way and another downwards and in a different direction. What you want without a doubt is very chaotic flow, no dead spots on the rocks, behind them and around them.
