    Have both tank's overflows run into the same sump. Then just split your return line in 2 and have ball valves on each so you can control the flow to each tank.

    Nothing particularly complicated, just make sure that your return pump has enough flow to properly circulate the water from both tanks.

    As for disease problems, a good idea would be to put UV sterilizers on the water returns from each tank. That way the sump doesn't get contaminated if one of the tanks has a disease/algea/whatever outbreak.
