I was in my favorite LFS today in the San Fernando Valley and snapped a pic with my Treo. Sorry it's a crappy pic, I'll try to get a better pic next time. As you can see, they have a 75/100 gallon tank mounted up high on the wall. When the tank fills up, it creates a siphon and pulls all of the water out of the tank leaving about 2" of water at the bottom and rushes down through a y-fitting out two 2" bulkheads into the 2 lower tubs, which look like they measure 12 foot X 4 foot X 1 foot high. The corals are absolutely gorgeous, there is nothing ugly in the tank. He has them tied together with two 2" bulkheads and three 1 1/2" bulkheads. It drains into a large bucket with floss where the pump pushes it back to the flush tank. Above each tub they have a 400w 14k MH. It would be easy to do at home, but would have a heck of a time hiding all the plumbing. They have an assortment of pipefish, seahorses, and a couple of small Tangs swimming around in there as well. Just thought it would be cool to post and might give someone an idea for their tank.
