I did mine in the center, I have the 29g as well. But for my location the peninsula style would have been harder to maintain. The globs of extra silicone in the top corners can certainly be trimmed, I trimmed my corners, but just be careful with your razor blade because it's an awkward angle you need to get in to get those upper corners.

How did you position the returns? I feel it kinda takes some space in the center and leaves the returns a bit close to the front of the tank

I agree that having the box in the middle was a bit of a challenge, but I moved each return to the side as much as possible to get to the corners. I plan on upgrading to the random flow nozzles soon to hopefully increase my spread of the flow.
I added an additional flow pump and have it pointed so that both 'streams' hit each other and that created good random flow everywhere. I currently have only the return pump on though as I'm letting a new bta settle before I turn the others back on.
