I'm wondering if anyone thinks it would be possible to rig up a way to get CO2 into two very small tanks from one reactor without overdosing them. I'm talking a 10 gallon and a 5 gallon. I know a lot of you are super good with DIY so suggest away!

tube coming out of reactor into a catch bottle. Then 2 tube coming out of catch bottle with plastic valves on each tube going to tanks.

This could get a little tricky with a DIY setup with the pressures involved. But on the right track with a manifold and a couple clippard valves. Not sure your regular plastic valves will let you fine tune it to regulate for the different tanks.

Very easy to setup and practically free to run! My dad has a DIY setup in his 45g plant tank that is 3 times the speed of the initial store bought receipt.
