I have this idea of putting a 10 gallon over my 20 gallon and have the fish be able to swim within both tanks. i drew this sketch. the grey parts on there would be bricks to hold the tank at an elevated position.
i would have it with an auto top off so that the water doesnt ever drop causing the water in my 10 to over flow the 20 gallon.
just ideas here. any input would be cool

I'd just be worried about it collapsing and then you'll have a huge mess on your hands.

Interesting concept. You should fine-tune the details and patent it. lol

Another thing that would be bad is if is fell in while you were away on vacation. It could be a disaster for everyone involved, the fish, the tank, your wallet. I personally wouldn't do it.

Seems like a cool idea. Your going to spend so much time and money when you could just get a 29 gallon.But good luck if you do

If you have a look on YouTube there are several videos on how to do an upside down aquarium

It's doable, I've seen videos on YouTube of elevated compartments like that, the issue you have is dead spots in water flow and things like that.
as well as making it stable enough that it won't collapse.
