extending a milwaukee co2 regulator to feed 4 diffusors


Hi friends,

I'm just weighing my options at the moment and wondered if anyone can offer some advice.

I use a single 10# co2 tank to power a single tank but my new goal is to feed 4 tanks with a stock milwaukee regulator. Wondering what parts and costs are involved to divide the output to power 3 more diffusors for 3 additional aquariums or whether going with an aquatek might be more cost effective.

Its also not clear whether this basic single stage milwaukee would power this many diffusors at the same time. Any advice would be appreciated

Are you planning to just use normal diffusers (glass with ceramic discs)?

4 aquariums might be the limit, depending on what kind of diffusers you are using, what length of tubing you will have, etc.

In any case, a manifold would be the easiest way to get everything set up.

Keep in mind that you will need a needle valve for each aquarium that requires a CO2 line.
