Lighting too, youll need 2 different light fixtures to fit. Im not sure exactly, but it has got to be tough to find one for that od length of each tank. How long is a 75?

Cool idea!

You'd have to be careful that you don't accidentally splash salt water into the Fresh tank during PWC. Or worse add the water to the wrong tank, that would be bad. A decent cover should keep out splashing though. Are you going to use similar looking substrates for the tanks?

I used to have two seperate 5g tanks squeezed into one frame meant for a tank twice the size, but they were both betta tanks. We used mountable false stone backgrounds on each dividing wall (and the backs) and it turned out pretty sweet. I ended up giving one of the tanks to a friend to take to college.

Why not take it to the next step and make 3... Freshwater, brackish, saltwater.
I wouldn't worry much about the temperature, personally. If you monitored it closely and it stayed consistant, you might be able to utilize the heat from your SW tank and use it to heat your FW tank rather than trying to suppress it.

(PS, nice color on that bay. Reminds me of my mare. )
