I have pressurized CO2. Is there a way to run it into two tanks; a 25 gallon and a 10 gallon?

Yep. All you need is a manifold and another needle valve.

Yes you can. I have a 10 lb tank which I feed to my 29 gal and 10 gal tanks. You would need 2 needle valves, a 'T' coming off your regulator and the proper step down fittings. Do a search here and you'll find lots of info. Here's a link to a discussion of your question here: link. You can also buy the fancier regulators with the built in manifolds. I believe Robert sells these as well. In any case you will need to adjust your flows to both tanks to get your desired pH/co2 levels.

Robert has a good manifold with 2 or 3 needle valves.

Thanks Mike. That's just what I'm looking for.

Did you fellow Canadians order it from Robert? When I look up the shipping charges it quotes $57.86 US. I just can't pay over a hundred dollars for a little valve.
