Default Multiple tanks one sump setup needed

Hello all. Looking for some pointers. I have 4 X 40 gallon breeders on 2 racks. One tank on top of the other, and the same setup right next to the first. I want to use the same filtration, so will be drilling the tanks. Top tank over flows into the bottom tank, and the bottom tank flows into the sump. Sump pumps back into the top tanks.

The question is, how and where would you setup and plumb the top tanks? Where would you drill the holes and how many holes. The tubing will be 1 inch.
