    hi,
    I have 4 tanks to supply with Co2. the problem is that I only have 1 Co2 bottle. to I am trying to split the Co2 to supply every tanks.
    this is where I have a problem. I did not find anything yet that work well for that.
    do you have any idea of how I can do that?

    Thx

    Pat

    I'm assuming you have a pressurized CO2 system. If so, try here:
    http://www.rexgrigg.com/sale.html Rex has the manifold you need, and the needle valves you need. Each tank gets its own needle valve, and if you prefer, its own bubble counter.

    FWIW I am planning something similar with at least two aquariums, and Rex gave the great hint to use inline needle valves. This way it is easier to adjust at the tanks far away from the CO2 tank instead of waking back and forth (with the needle valve at the manifold).

    I clued folks on to this some 10+ years ago I think now, maybe longer.
    I made a large one for a LFS that wanted planted tanks.

    Seemed a waste to use several regs and tanks.
