That's a hard question to answer. Flow is often the hardest thing to get right in a tank.

Try putting one in the front left corner facing the front right corner and the other in in the back Right corner facing the back left corner

That setup should basically create a circular flow throughout the tank. It might work.

I've always had luck placing them on opposite walls and aiming at each other gives you a nice random pattern

Yeah, but that's not really possible with the current hard scape. Anywhere they would be aiming at each other half the tank would be without flow.

I'd aim one towards the rock work

Looks like your best bet is to move around some rock and get the two powerheads pointed toward each other.
