All the pet stores around me run sumps for each section. The sections usually have 6 or 8 tanks and the sump at the bottom. Drilled would be the way to go imo. So the top drains to the one under and so on till it hits the sump then the pump pumps back to the top.

And I read some were that sponge filters won't work with salt water is this true.
I don't know about sponge filters in a marine environment. I know very little about saltwater. Like Andrew recommended drilled is best. You can manifold a whole bank of tanks and drain them all at once. Just stir the gravel in each tank, and let the sediment drain with the water. you could still use sponge filters, if you didn't use a sump system. I will try to get some pics on of my setup. But I am not very savvy when it comes to computers
