filter output position?

Hey Everyone,

I have an FX5 filter on my 75 gallon and was wondering, is there an ideal place to place the output hose? Currently i just have it on the back a light on the left side with, with both outputs angled towards the surface for some water agitation for O2. I was wondering if this is fine or if someone else would suggest otherwise? I have heard putting it on the side of the tank is good but this is not an option as I have glass tops (without them my giant danios will jump out).
