Six to one

Have a stand with six 2 foot tanks and don't know how to filter all of them can I put in a sump without plumbing into the tanks as three are acrylic or do I have to buy six little filters to run seperately?
Any help would be great

I'm sure someone will either confirm or deny this... but I'm sure you could use pumps with hoses into a seventh tank with a master filter. It'd have to process a ton of water and a pump that moves enough water. There may be better ideas out there, but thats just the idea that comes to mind.

It is possible. If you want an idea how to set it up I would find a lfs with this setup and ask them how they did it. I saw a place in Florida that had about 20 small tanks hooked up to a single filtration system, so I know it's possible. I am curious about how they regulate the water to each tank, but I didnt take time to look closely.
