    So I buy the new aquarium with the same size, and replanted HC cuba block by block, growing submerged. But I failed again because lack of light and CO2...

    Do you need extra pressure to run this diffuser? Friend of mine bought diffuser that can output very fine bubble but need extra pressure, at least 50psi. Normal regulator only 25-30psi

    how have you splitted the co2?
    I was told to use multiple needle valve splitters and they are really pricey.
    it would be an easy to use ADA Y-Branch splitters, though

    i'm using 3-way brass splitter for 3 tanks, 2 branch for two aquariums, and the other one splitted again by plastic "T" branch into two inline diffuser (i'm using two filters for this tank).
    this is the pict:
    [​IMG]
    the price is about US$ 25 here in Jakarta, or you can buy online here

    this splitter combined with UP solenoid regulator, i bought it about US$70. this combination works well, produce stable and constant bps
    [​IMG]

    UP product also sells One to Six Solenoid Regulator which priced about US$100
    [​IMG]


    IME, ADA "Y" branch splitters not recommended if your diffusers had difference pressure, its hard to adjust and get constant output. and sometimes CO2 hose will pop out from the branch if pressure is too high.
    Actually ADA Y branch had the same quality with pneumatic splitter, and the price is lot far cheaper than ADA. you can buy pneumatic Y branch under US$ 5, like this pict below
