I had my tank viewable from two sides for a while. I used a canister and ran the input right up one corner and the output up another corner. All cords and hoses (CO2) would go up the corner too.

I'm doing a 200 gallon tank and want to maintain the filtration integrity. Did the corner work for you ?
what made you change to something else ?

Well, I was only doing a 55g tank. The corner did work for me. I moved to the wall because I felt I was trying to do too much to get the tank to look good on all sides. Now with the back I can scape it a little better with taller plants in the back and not worry about blocking the view from one side or the other. \

overflows & water circulation in a two sided (f&b) 200 gallon tank

I am looking for recommendations as to where to place the overflows and how to maintain proper water circulation in a 6 foot long, 2.5 foot deep, 2 foot wide SW tank.
This tank will be a two sided view, in a wall with the Front & Back as views.
