I wouldn't think cleaning something like that could possibly be that difficult. Couldn't you just buy a bottle-brush or something?
It sounds like a cool idea to me. And the fact that it's challenging will make it all the more special once it's done. You'll appreciate it more. Nothing really neat is ever easy to accomplish.

Ah I see, that is pretty simple then I was thinking you wanted to do it through the sides of the tank

Going through the sides of an acyrlic tank would be fairly easy. I would glue the four sides together as if you where making a sq. tube the size you wanted, then glue that to the two tanks in the position that you wanted the bridge. After the glue is set I would then cut out the holes inside the square using a router and Waala...done.

You were asking about 2 pumps before... you only want water leaving one tank and returning to the other if the water in the pipe doesn't have steady flow it will develop air bubbles.

ahh that is true or else it really wouldnt stay the same parameters through out the tanks. and it'd have steady flow by doing it with just one pump and overflow
