They are commonly called river rocks and landscape yards, fairly easy to find, especially for cheap. Not 100% sure that is what the OP has but you can get basically the same thing if you look for...

I have had a few tanks in direct sunlight. If it's for a short period of time, you may reap the benefits with little downside. If it's for a long period of time, it's no fun. DHG doesn't need high...

I have not found alternatives. I was hoping to find some SS ones used for another purpose but haven't had any luck finding any.

I do agree that two needle valves are necessary but you don't need to make a manifold necessarily. You can also put two needle valves inline and just split the tubing. ADA has parts to accomplish...

I used a 2224 on mine which had plenty of flow, which has less flow than a 2215 by just a bit. I think the 2213 would be fine, I may suggest a 2215 just for flexibility, especially if you are...
