I plan to set up a 55 gallon the first of the month but already have figured out I will also have room for a 75 later on that will set alongside the 55 gallon.
Is there a way to get a large canister filter now but later on add it also to the 75 gallon? In other words, run two tanks from this one filter?

I've also read that a canister can not sit down too far from the top of the water in the tank. Can it just sit on the floor between the two tanks or should it be raised on a wooden box of sorts to elevate it?

Obviously, I know nothing about canister filters!
