In my opinion, HairyNoseWombat is 100% correct. These should be treated as 2 tanks. The tunnels are a gimmick, not well thought out filtration.

You could certainly do hobs. Or you could do canister filters or any combination. If the flow is too much with the canister filter(s) you have, then add a pvc ball valve and some barb fittings to attach it and turn the flow down a bit.

I'm sure your algae situation is not being helped by the fact that all the plants I see are very slow growing with the exception of the monte carlo???or hydrocotyle japan??? on the lower left. Adding a bunch of stems to the background would help. Either that or adjust fertilizer and light to appropriate levels for very low light, slow growing plants.

And welcome to the forum. Its a fun place with a lot of really good information. For what its worth I love the idea you had with the duality of tanks.
