Filter/Canister Placement

Hey all!

I have a penguin 350 and a sunsun canister on my 55g. Im thinking of putting the penguin in the middle of the tank and then put the canister spray bar on one side and input bar on the other.

Is that the best option or is there better ideas out there?

With the penguin in the middle of the tank the flow from the canister would be interrupted. I would position the penguin on the same side as the spray bar.

If that isn't possible try to have the penguin on the back but close to one of the sides.
