Default Fuel Tank Positioning for Gas Engines?

I am in the process of converting an old biplane that had a Super Tiger 2300 on it to
a gas RCGF 30 twin (my first twin gasser). With the twin, the carb is hanging below
the engine, so where should the tank centerline be in relation to the carb? At present
the tank position is centerline with the crankshaft, making the carb below the bottom
of the tank! Should I lower the tank?

Thanks in advance for all opinions & answers.
