this was explained in another post. Imagine that U shape piece was separate and put upside down in the U shape. then filled with water. if you seal the 2 end and inverted and put the 2 end underwater to remove the seal, then put right side up, the water won't leak out. You just need to secure it to make sure that column is raised out of water. That and the water level won't dip below the 2 opening or water will flow out. You can see how it work using a glass. Dip the glass underwater and let out some gas inside so water flow into the glass half way. Raise the glass up a bit and you'll see water will rise with it. As long as the rim doesn't go out of the water.

Well, they are great if you have 2 tanks, you can use it as a bridge like theese.

Sepgundamrg-
That's crazy cool! I didn't even think the fish would go in them- if I was a fish I'd be scared out of my mind of something like that. Nowhere to go if a predator appears... not that it would, but fish are probably thinking of that sort of thing.
Wouldn't it be so neat to have a whole bunch of tanks in your house and connect them like that, and then have like a huge refugium for the whole deal in the laundry room or someplace else out of the way, so you'd only have to do one big water change per week!
In the long ones though, how to they clean them and keep them so algae free? Also, how do they get water movement in there?

I can not take credit for that link someone posted a topic called odd aquariums and had that link. I read a lot about them after that though. The water goes through there as it filters regularly. You simply put the intake of your filter(outside canister in this instance) in one aquarium, and the putpu in the other it causes the water to move through the water bridge and cleans both tanks. You clean it by either disassembling the whole thing which would be a lot of effort, or you get some algae eating fish/snails. Depending on what you get they should keep the bridge very clean. The last option for cleaning would be to create something like the magnetic pads that scrub your tank glass, only make it curved so it can fit right.
