You can supply both tanks with co2, but you won't be able to adjust their distribution independently. There is only 1 knob on the regulator.

But I am 90% sure you can do multiple tanks with some of their other setups.

For what it's worth, I really do think GLA's atomic regulators are the sexiest around! Can't go wrong with it.

I bought mine after several DIY attempts. Dropping the $189 on it hurt a bit, especially after the money I had already wasted trying the DIY route, but I'm glad I went with it. It's been up and running a couple of months now and I love it. When friends ask if I think it's worth the cash, I always reply with "In my 20+ years of fish/planted tank keeping, it's the best investment I've made." I'll be purchasing a second one sometime in Dec/Jan.

I've also been running the CO2 pb regulator for about 2 years now without any issues. The needle valve is very accurate and holds the flow nice and stable. The regulator won't dump on you either. I'm liking the looks of the Atomic too. If I had the extra cash I'd buy another one in a heart beat.

Is a needle valve recommended to be used with this regulator or is there one built in that is adequate for having good control?

I assume the v2 is strong enough to properly run one of the inline atomic diffusers(30+psi)?

All of the "atomic" regulators from gla work with their "atomic" diffusers.

We have upgraded a component of the Paintball series. The connection point is now aluminum and grey anodized. The valve pin is still brass.


The V3 is for full sized cylinders with standard CGA320 valve connection.
