Intake/output placement

Hello, I am setting up a 210 Gal tank and have(2) FX6 Filters. I am looking for some guidance on where to place the intake and out put hoses. I am also planning on using a wave maker. Thanks

Plan on re-circulating at LOT of water I see. I'm not aware of a hard and fast rule on intake/exhaust placement. One configuration that seems sensible to me is position exhaust/movement resources in such a way to keep as much detritus in motion as possible. This increases the likelihood of it being picked up by an intake. I realize that this may seem difficult to some. However, based on personal experience, it is possible.
