splitting co2 between tanks?

hi, so i am starting a 13g iwagami and want to split my pressurised co2 that i use on my 55g. I was hoping that i could just put a T piece into the line but this doesnt work, it seems to just take the easiest route... Any ideas how to do this? without spending out on a new twin output reg..
Also got a cheap glass/ ceramic diffuser delivered but when i put it on nothing happens? im assuming that it normally pushes the co2 through the ceramic in visible micro bubbles?
thanks

Just Plantin' and prayin'

You will need 2 seperate needle valves to split the CO2. You can use the inline tee followed by a couple of inline needle valves or speed controllers (offered here by a vendor and also by ADA) so you can control the output to both tanks.
