Running Gray Through The Black

Ordering 2 tanks this week.They both slope down from 4 in. to 9"side to side where the 3' collector is. They will be mounted one behind the other.
I was thinking of coming out of the gray 3" and tying into the black directly behind with a gate valve.This gives me the ability to empty the black through a 3" Valterra then open the gate to empty the gray through the black.Any downside or suggestions for connection?

I have thought of running a line from near the drain of the gray tank to a pump that would dump into the top of the black tank. My purpose would be to extend time between dumps. We always fill the gray way before the black.
