Looks doable, for sure. It will probably depend on what kind of budget you have for your project, and if you are aiming more for an 'ease' of maintenance. Acrylic seems to be a good choice because it is easy to work with: can be designed to suit your needs & can easily be customized (size, dividers, etc.), and also allows for more of a foolproof plumbing system ~ less chance of leaks if using a central filtration system, and/or auto drain-refill system (compared to plastic food containers).I've come across this "condo" system (as the creator calls it) that has separators and central filtration, but I've never done plumbing of any kind and really don't know where to start.
Apparently they did this with acrylic or whatever, which I'm comfortable working with, but I feel like some sort of plastic food container from the dollar store might be cheaper.
I use to raise dwarf crays with a similar, smaller system (something like the one in your pictures) and also used the plastic 'shoe-box' type containers. The plastic containers started to become a real chore (constant water changes) because they didn't have any type of filtration. Designing a centralized filter should not be a problem once you figure out how much water you want to have recirculated, along with the water levels you want to maintain (I kept the water level in my recirculating condo about 6-8"). Then it's just a matter of drilling holes, connecting fittings, hooking up intake and discharge lines, installing a pump and filter. Sounds like a fun project that might just pay for itself!
