It sounds pretty risky to me.

I think it would probably be cheaper and easier to just build a really huge water bridge out of acrylic or glass (I'm thinking something a foot wide)

plus, if it fails, you only end up with a couple gallons on the floor, and isolated tanks (as opposed to hundreds of gallons, and no tanks).

or if you went with james1542 suggestion, you might be able to rig up a really large (and slow) archimedes screw type pump, that way organisms could be transported up without harm.
