I have about 6 tanks now working of of one CO2 bottle.  What I did was
was set the regulator so I have barely enough pressure to push it to
all my tanks and get it bubbling.  From the presure regulator I simply have
a reducer that bring is down to standard airline size.  From the centeral
air line I branc it off to a manifold with 12 needle valves on it very simular
to what are used for standared areation control but slightly higher quality.

In each of the tanks I'm using a different type of homemade reactor.  So
far my only problem was when I tried to use a silinoid to shut it off at night
the one I used only reduced my flow and leaked.  So I'm now running it 
24/7 untill I solve the silinoid problem.
