right, you need a large diameter tube between the two tanks.

but then you wouldn't need two filters.

OK, I found an old vaccuum cleaner, I am going to use the hose and see if I can keep the levels.

Finally found my camera. The reason I want to connect the tanks, would be so that I can move the filters to the 20 gal and open the front of the 55 up.
