Which area of the sump is the best for bioballs?

Which of these areas is/are best for the bioballs. I have them in B and C right now. D is a trickle-plate that I have not yet installed.

For the trickle plate...would a grid-drilled piece of acrylic be ok?

Sorry, apparently my diagram didn't load. B is the upflow, and C is the Overflow into the return.

Back in the day, I put the bio balls directly under where the water drops down from the tank.

So it would look like this.

water from tank
v
trickle plate
v
bio balls
v
eggcrate


as for the trickle plate, yea that would be fine.

hope it helps
