Help with my first Canister Filter

I just got a Marineland Canister filter 360 which is my first canister. I just got a 75 gallon tank and was thinking that the intake tube should be on the opposite side as the output tube. Is this correct or does it matter? Also I had a 20 L gallon tank with was easy to fill up in about an 30 mins. Any suggesion how to fill this 75 gallon tank. Thanks

On my 55G I put the inlet and outlet on opposite sides. Pointed the outlet so it makes a circular flow as can be seen on the top.

You may want to look into a python or build your own.

My intake and output are right next to each other, I use the phs to direct flow into the intake. To be honest, you can place it where you like.
You can use a ph to fill the new tank.

I've always done the same on my 90g. Went years on end in this setup, and never had a problem with water quality.
