Cool 90g reef ready tank build!!!

Hey guys I'm pulling the trigger on building a reef tank. I'm going to buy a all glass 90 gal. reef ready tank. I noticed there are two different kinds of megaflows. one sits in the corner and the other sits on the back left hand side of the tank about 4 to 6 inches away from the left wall. does it matter what position to get? is there a difference in the filtration flow? any other helpful advice would be great too, im open to consider other ideas besides a different size tank and a home built sump. I'm trying to have all sorts of colorful coral and reef safe fish. any ideas on those would be great too. i will be running a proflex sump with a refugem and skimmer <(not too sure what brand). thank you in advance and hope to hear back from you guys soon.

Welcome to the forums! And congratualtions on taking the 90g plunge.

I wish i knew more about drilled tanks so i can be of no help there. But i'm sure others will chime in.

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

The overflow position is mostly aesthetic. I opted for the corner flow since it's easier to stack rock on.

I also have a 90g tank that has a corner flow. Personally I would have rather had one with a middle overflow because of where my tank is (you can see each end), but it will work for me.
