co2 manifold question

i'm under the impression that co2 or any liquid/gas for that matter will take the path of least resistance, correct? what if you were to use some type of valve/manifold? if so, can you post a link for me where i can get them? is this something you have rex?

i want to use a 5lb tank on my 20H and 2.5 nano.

CO2 Stuff For Sale

A couple of different manifolds listed there.

Doing CO2 on a 2.5 will be tricky though. Not a lot of room for error.

It all depends on your regulator. And if you want to tear apart your regulator. Any of the manifolds I sell can be used.

If you want to run the manifold in-line the the mini manifolds are the best bet. And remember that if the tanks are more than about 5' of tubing run from the needle manifold it's best IMHO to run a in-line needle valve.

they're only about 3' apart from one another. i think i'm gonna go with the mini manifold and just use it inline. can you put together what i need and give me a price?
