Silly rivertank idea

Just a wierd idea for a rivertank...

Build a 48x15x36 tank (e.g., squarish but low) out of acrylic, and put a central divider into it, leaving 12" at both ends clear. This would have the effect of two 48x15x18 tanks joined.

Use powerheads and internal filters to create anticlockwise water movement - so there wouldn't be any 'intake' type areas, just the water swirling around and around and around and ... (now I feel quite seasick!)

(Dunno why, but this sounds familiar somehow. Has someone already suggested it?)
