connecting 2 10gs into 1 tank?

Any ideas about connecting two 10g tanks into one tank without leaking?

As in take out one back wall of each and merge them in front of each other?

How about a water bridge? Pretty cool and a much lower chance of epic leakage.

If you already want to put it under the knife that extremely, I would suggest the water bridge as well. Huge cool factor.

Another thing I hadn't thought about was thickness of glass and it breaking if made into one due to increased volume.
