There is a way to heat all 3 tanks with one heater, but it will involve a high-tech system. You're better off buying 2 additional heater.

You will need a sump. Then use overflows in each of your tanks to connect them to your sump. Next connect a return pump to your tank (3return pumps for 3 tanks).

Very costly when you look at the electricity bill. This is something that I would really like to do one day.
