Hello. Im trying to send flow from 1 single return pump to 6 tanks lined side by side 1' apart. all this water is drained to a single sump too. using 1 single pipe for the return and branching it off, would the water flow be automatically dispersed evenly to all 6 tanks or would i have to get gate valves to control it?

Ball valves should be used on the return for each tank. This will allow you to balance the flow and it will also allow you to shut the water off to a single tank if needed.
