Powerhead Placement!

I just got two koralia evo 1050s and was wondering how I should place them in my tank. I have a 55 gallon 50 pounds of live rock with a clown, anemone and a frag of star polyps.. Any ideas. I put up a picture of my tank.

My return pump is pretty strong and agitates the water. Do you think I should still point it up?

I have my return pump facing down and my power head facing up facing the over flow box
Like put it in the middle of the side and put it where it's pointing to the over flow

These guys might be to powerful for my tank. I accidentally unplugged my return pump and a bunch of crud came out. Other than that what do you think?
