I did a search for Co2 split and 2ways in the forums but everything seems to directed @ 2 Aquariums one Co2 tank setup. What do you use when it is one tank? I was thinking of putting a second Diffuser in my 125 gallon tank. It is 6 ft. long and I read Epicfish mention that on a tank over 4 ft. 2 diffuser should be used, one on each end. I was thinking of just putting a simple plastic Y after the bubble counter. Would this suffice my needs? Any advice would be appreciated.

I highly doubt it will work. Pressurized gas will always take the path of least resistance.

Best bet is some sort of splitter or manifold and two needle valves.

The right way would be to buy a splitter with another bubble counter and needle valve. Rex has good setups. Thats what I did on my 180g, and worth the extra money for the control.

I hear you Rex and fishtastic , I wonder if anyone has tried this setup. If not I will just wait till I get my new diffuser and try it. If that doesn't work I will be visiting your spot Rex. Either way I will post my experience in case any other newbie was wondering. Thanks for the advice.
