It can be done with multiple syphons and such, but you have to do it right to prevent it if one gets plugged up, it doesn't flood the rest, and as stated, disease outbreaks are another problem that can happen and affect all your tanks.
I have a 20L and at one point, I was trying to keep 3 kinds of shrimp in it, so I got the plastic dividers to keep them apart and had 1 canister filter on it. The problem I found is that with the intake in 1 section (or tank in your case) its only pulling mulm and debris from that section and not the rest. The furthest section got no suction and it ended up getting bacterial infections, etc. If you're keeping something like shrimp or using them as breeding/holding tank, sponge filters work great. Cheap HOB filters work as well and prevent all the problems I listed above.
