Thought about it but if I do that all the tanks will share the same water, and the cool thing about this setup is that you can have 5 very different tanks all with different parameters which allows for more flexibility and variety. Thats actually why I went with individual filters and heaters as well, I was initially thinking of doing a sump or splitting up the intake and outflow of a canister filter for all the tanks but decided this way is cooler because I can be a mad scientist and try all my experiments... I can also set up a hospital tank in a hurry if need be.
