Water Flow?

When setting up a 100 gal 60 inch long tank should all the water flow be going in the same direction. I have 2 canister filters and a power head. I was going to set up so that each canister would be pushing agains one another and the power head pushing in one of the same directions and a filter. Whould theis work and if not how should I set up my tank?

Pointing the flow into different areas is definitley a good thing. It'll keep dead areas from arising in your tank. The waterflow going against each other with do this.
