Does this hole placement seem fine?

Drilling the holes for a 1" overflow bulkhead and a 1" return bulkhead tomorrow in my 20 gallon long, just wanted to know if the hole placement seems fine?
The overflow box is going to be nestled against the top of the rim, but it is not in the corner as I couldn't get it to be straight with the hefty silicone on the corner.

The return is slightly higher up with still enough room for the bulkhead to clear the rim.
Does this look fine? This is my first time drilling.

That looks great, it's just a matter of how fast your return pump flows. Just don't let your drain pipe get clogged or you're screwed.
