Need help asap on drilling locations

My 240g (8x2x2) rimless came to the store I ordered it from and the manufacturer forgot to drill the tank so now is my only option to add any additional holes or move some. Maybe a blessing in disguise. I don't know so I want to ask this forum.

It will be low tech/ no co2 and won't need a heater here in Arizona for the fish I plan to keep.

I was thinking an outflow in each bottom corner of the back glass just above substrate level and 1 inflow on the back glass upper right corner. Filter will be an Eheim 2262 and I was thinking I'd split the drain/outflow into two, hence 1 in each bottom corner.

Would anyone suggest any additional holes and if so, where?
