For the second one maybe above the intake in the back right facing the spray bar if it fits. If you think you could benefit from more surface agitation you could position it in such a way that it causes ripples but doesn't "break" the surface tension.

I guess it also depends on how much you mind being able to see them.
Those are good suggestions. My biggest concern is the jungle on the left side; I'd like to get some flow through that. I was thinking about putting one low on the left side and aimed straight up.

I will be running them on a timer.

Tank is Co2 injected w/ Griggs, I didnt even think about varying concentrations throughout the tank. The drop checker is in a low flow position, if I have better circulation maybe it will reach green sooner after CO2 on.
