Filtration overlook... 125 gallon...

Here's my current filtration. I tried to draw a simple pic in photoshop... hope I did a good enough job to give you guys an idea. I have two Rena Filstar XP3's... wondering if the way I've got it setup is alright. Also, I would like to know if adding a power head to get "dead" spots in the tank would help out much... Heres the pic.

I like the idea of 2 cannister filters in this size tank. That's what I have in mine.

I have the outflows positioned in the center of the tank (one vertically to maximize water flow). The intakes are in each corner. HTH

I might be adding a power head to the center of the tank. Thanks for the advice. Anyone else? As many suggestions as possible to help with my situation... these cichlids are messy eaters
