The right (simple, stable) way to do this is to run a hose to your other 
tank.   Put a good brass air hose valve on each tank and use them as 
trimmers to drop the pressure just a smidge from the common pressure coming 
out of the regulator.   Air hose and valves (for aquarium air pumps) are cheap.
