Got my reverse sump going, tank will start cycling as of now. Still waiting on my extra eheim parts to make two intakes. I used SS mesh to cover the holes.
I didn't know how to attatch the mesh so I just used some office clips. The eheim and sponge filters have been cycling in a very high bioload 170 gal tank with baby koi. Hopefully it'll give me a jump start on the bacteria cultivation

Recieved my Portable RO unit today. I got it for 75$ shipped. It's rated at 150 gpd and 5 gph. It's pretty small and perfect for what I'm going to be using it for.

Do you have the name and brand of the glue you use? LOL I need to work on some acrylic and I don't want to mess it up.
Thanks for your information!

|Dayumdanny||I used a water base acrylic glue it actually melts the two pieces of acrylic together to become one. Much stronger than using a glue or some kind of a seal|

|sunyang730||Wow, nice, How did you glue your tank though ?|

|brinks||I think if you have a u shaped tube between/over the middle divider, that would siphon water to which ever tank has a lower water level, that would balance the difference in flow rates, or you could put the inlet from the filter in one tank, a couple of siphons to the second tank and the outlet to the filter in the second tank.|

Really like this concept - very cool show tank.
Another workaround would be to very simply use the power of the Siphon! http://wetpetssupply.com/images/utubeCG89194medup.jpg - just a tube like this hooked over the middle of the two tanks. Use an airline to suck the air out and when the water level is higher on one side than the other the siphon will equalize the pressure by flowing water into the tank with the lower level. A 3/4 inch ID tube could probably do more than 600gph.
To prevent migration sponges would have to be used on either end.

Eheim filter finally came, time to start cycling. Also ordered my stainless steal inlet guards, 13mm Y Barb Hose connector, and 12mm clear hosing.
