Having a central filtration system won't reduce the amount of tank maintenance very much, in my opinion. You will still need to wipe down or scrape the tank walls, and prune the plants. If you use an EI dosing method, you will also need to do big water changes on each tank. I just don't see how you will gain anything from this system. Canister filters can go for a couple of months without any maintenance, anyway.

Planning is always good! I think the single biggest labor saver is a water change system where you just open a valve or two, no hoses, no buckets, no switching connections, etc. Add to that an automatic water topping system, and you have cut the dull routine maintenance way down.
