In my new 125 I'm installing two filters: an Eheim 2028 driving a UV sterilizer; and a Fluval 304 driving a DIY CO2 reactor.

My question is whether it's better to have each filter have it's own output at different parts of the tank (better circulation), or to 'T' both filters into a single outlet (less tubes in the tank).

niko,
Great point on crossing the filter flows. Of course now I need to buy another length of hose since I have the filters located at opposite ends of the stand.

I actually will have dual heaters in the tank once the weather cools off to warrant it. The tank came with a 250w Pro-Heat II titanium heater and I'll be geting another one once the Fall temperatures arrive. In the end I'll have one heater located near each filter intake.

In the diagram below, the green represents the Eheim tubes and the blue are the Fluvals.
