Use Walmart's hanging mech filters. You only need to buy five of them and for the four 20's they'll be cheap. And one larger one for your bigger tank. They'll all use the same filter media (#3) and they sell them in six-packs. In fact that will be perfect because the 20's use one each (there's 4) and the 60g will use 2 (there's 2 + 4 = 6)... So one six-pack every media change which should be 2-4 weeks.
i would hesitate to buy a walmart brand filter. if your going for 4 individual filters, you could try internal filters with an air pump. You can hook all 4 to one air pump and regulate the air going to each tank to get even filtration. Will also save space since HOBs take up space behind the tank.
i would go the route of sponge filters...........one large air pump can supply air to 8 tanks, maybe more depending on how large of a pump you purchase............I'm running a pump with 6 airlines coming off of a gang valve and each line has its own independent valve for air flow control.........This is being used on my shrimp breeder tanks and my dwarf crayfish tank and have had great success with it, the beauty of it, im only using one electrical outlet for filtering 6 tanks.......I agree with Sin, i think HOB filters take up too much room, depending on the tank setup.
