This is what I mean.

Image not my own, it's from Aquaspot world. Some powerheads have the little intake so you can have them shoot bubbles in. Undesirable in a reef, but ok in fresh. It would always be sucking a tiny amount of water from the top of the tube, and if any air collected, pull that out right away. I've seen people do this before.

I used one of those in my first tank as a power head, I took off the little tube.

I think most SW people remove the tubes. I know I do. But for this, it could be useful.

I'm thinking by the time you make this setup fail safe you could have drilled the tanks yourself or got a single tank from Craigslist.
