kevmo911 I'd guess that three generic glass diffusers would work out fine. It's the variation in higher cracking pressures of Atomics that present problems, I think.

On the other hand, if you're doing all reactors, no problem. And even those cheap needle valves will do the job, though better valves will make it a lot easier on you.
So using three glass Diffusers is a no go?

othewise it looks like it could suite your needs well

you might want to entertain the option of a manifold being built here by a hobbyist such as bettatail, or oldpunk
quality builds that are probably far more accurate, and reliable.
just my .2

Darkblade48 Either a three way splitter or another setup is fine.

The splitter would be the cheaper option, since you would only need two additional needle valves for the other aquariums.

20LB CO2 tank?

I have a 20LB CO2 tank running on my 72 Bow tank

I also have two 20 gallon tank about 5 Ft away, I realize I want Co2 in these tank to...

So my Question is, Should I buy a 3 way splitter to use on the 20lb tank? or buy another CO2 set up for the two 20 gallon tank
