Think about a circuit a->b->canister filter->a instead of a->b == b->a because you're not gonna get that without some fairly sophisticated flow regulation/level sanity checks.
or you can do it in the back.

another option: trim those middle sides down enough to glue the acrylic bridge between 2 tanks. this allows water flows back and forth.

anyway looking great.
