Question How to do Running stream tank?!

I want to do a running stream tank like Oliver Knott did for Panta Rhei. I know the tank has false bottom and the pumps are placed there but can anyone tell me where exactly do one places the pump? outlet? inlet?

when i was toying around with doing a river tank, i found a bunch of plans for river manifolds:

there's also a good series of videos on a river tank build on youtube.

I’d just get a long, low tank like a 33 long and put a wavemaker at one end. I had a native stream tank set up like that (with the canister filter intake and output situated at opposite ends), and it was great.

Good luck.
