Got my 201 powerheads :)

Finally got two Aquaclear #201 powerheads.

After struggling for quite a while I've finally set it up. All I have connected now is the powerhead with the adaptor then to my UG uplift tube. Hope I didn't do anything wrong... hehe. I'll try to get some pictures taken soon.

The flow is about one inch from the water surface. The flow strength is set to 2 out of 7 or 8, didn't use the vertical flow control thing. No air.

I'm pointing both of the heads at about 45 degrees to the center front of my tank. The 2 powerheads are at the back corners where my UGF uplift tubes are (obviously). And my Aquaclear mini filter is in the middle.

Does it sound like I'm doing things right? Any suggestions on distance from surface, directions (horizontal angels), flow, vertical angel, etc? :
