I have a single Fx6 on my 125. Intake and return on total opposite ends.
I'm ready to add a 2nd Fx6 and looking for suggestions on where to place the intake and return.
Opposite ends like I currently have but reversed? 2nd intake near first return and 2nd return near first intake?

You should experiment with placement to find how you get the best circulation and filtration for your tank. On my 75 I have 2 canisters with the intakes in the back corners and the outputs in the back center directing flow to the front corners. This works for how my tank is set up; the water circulates well and solid waste that is not picked up gathers in the back under the outputs making it very easy to vacuum up.
