I have a hard plumbed 3/4 pvc

holding tank to the two main aquariums.
The hose is used to syphon all other aquarium. The manifold is used to swap between each and goes under the house to a single drain.
I use a 5/8 hose to fill all other aquariums . I can fill the 55 gal
holding tank in about 10 min and use the Y to set temperature correctly for each tank.
The suction pump came from Tractor Supply $89 been using it for two years just incorporated it into a stationary system. I use a $34 return pump from harbour freight 560GPH and two remote plugs $15 each you can stop start fill pump from anywhere in the house but the suction pump draws too many amps to shut off wit remote . I have added a switch on that one so I can just turn off and on. I'll post more pics once I get home to show plumbing to main tanks.
