The sponge filters? I don't really know. Some how it creates a suction. I have one on my 20g. It's all that filters the tank and its very clear.
I would like to know how/if you could run a canister on multiple tanks.

Cool I guess I can read up on it

So I guess for water changes you can drain right into your floor drain which rocks how about a sink got one in the room or nearby?

It would be an interesting concept but like you said easy chance of spreading disease

There's a sink maybe 5-10 feet from where the tanks will be! I'll get a python.

I saw a old display system from walmart on craigslist about 2 weeks ago for ridiculously cheap. I think is said it was either 9 or 12 twenty gal tanks depending on how it was set up. That would have been cool for A fish room, but I'd want bigger than 20 gallons.

Actually I do have some questions! Should I run my two big tanks (75 or 90 and 55) on the Fluval FX5 or individual filters? What do you think would be best?
Also, would the Fluval, and an Emperor 400 be too much flow? I also have an Emperor 280. I could do the Emperor 400 and the Fluval on the 75/90 and the Fluval and Emp 280 on the 55.
One more. If I split up the intake and output with a PVC Y could I run both the tanks on the one filter?

On my larger tanks I run canisters and everything else is sponge filtration run on a single air pump.
