CO2 Regulator

Hello all: I have two 55 gallon aquariums and one 35 gallon hex. I need a good 3-way CO2 regulator and came across this one: http://greenleafaquariums.com/co2-re...regulator.html
This thing is $380 with a triple manifold, 3 bubble counters, and 3 needle valves. Is this worth it or are there less expensive quality alternatives?

Presently, I have a Red Sea Pro CO2 kit on a 55 gallon but the regulator gauges have taken some abuse.

If you already have a regulator, then you could potentially set it up for three aquariums with a manifold, and two additional needle valves and bubble counters.

This would probably be cheaper than buying a new setup outright.

I'm with Darkblade48 on this one. Would save you a good bit of money since the regulator is the expensive part. Needle valves and bubble counters are pretty cheap and I can't imagine a manifold would be too expensive.

Couldn't you make your own manifold extremely cheaply with some Ts for the co2 tubing?
