Off balance is not an issue.
Can you now sail with water tank empty and fuel tank full? Or vice versa ?
It is like two people sitting on one cockpit bench or the other one.
It does not matter for your size boat.
I would keep them separated and use a T valve to select one or another.
The material of the tank is an issue. Bladder in the tank may be a good idea.
