If you do not need 6 valves for tanks a smaller version can be made by using
some 1/8" brass piping. Using a female "T" and male to male threaded pipe
pieces you can add another valve as your system grows.......all you do is
buy another "T" and a 1" piece of threaded brass pipe and add another needle
valve. Edward's from MMM is great and cost about 19$ each. So for about 21$
you can add another tank to your CO2 set up. This can be extended and is
modular to suit one's needs.
The valves also come with a brass 1/8" pipe adapter. The valves are all
metal (unlike some of the ARO's etc that are cheaper that I was not too
happy with plastic housing). 

MMM also has a nice all glass ceramic disc for those who like that method of
diffusing CO2. Good price and good product BTW.
