To add to the fun in helping solve the issues:

- Agreed: treat as two separate tanks (ignore the tunnel).
- Keep the canister, but split the the intake and output, with "Y" connectors, so that each tank has an input and output from the one filter and add a ball valve to each output.
- Put a spray bar at the top back, pointing flow across the top and down the front, making sure that you get good surface rippling for gas exchange.
- If that isn't enough flow, place the wands at the bottom and back, pointing flow up the back. If needed to get good gas exchange, add a cheap skimmer to each tank.

Psssst: nitrates shouldn't be zero. This brings up the whole plant and algae approach that will involve light, CO2, and fertilizer. However, this is almost a separate topic once you get your setup where you want it.
