GLA PRO-DS-3 Dual Stage CO2 Regulator (Modular Manifold)
Our GLA PRO-DS-3 CO2 regulator is built with premium components, perfectly tailored to your planted aquarium, for superior CO2 distribution. We design our CO2 regulators in the USA, handcrafted with premium pneumatic components to provide a distinctly reliable and innovative solution for CO2 distribution. Our CO2 engineers build and test each regulator to order and provide lifelong customer support for each and every regulator we build. Our innovative, forward thinking CO2 technology is highly rated in the planted aquarium community. We have pushed the limits of aquarium CO2 technology, setting a new industry standard for CO2 distribution. We are dedicated to providing professional CO2 regulators and aquarium CO2 systems to the planted aquarium hobbyist and to specialized industries seeking the best CO2 equipment available.
GLA PRO-DS modular CO2 regulators have paved the way in adaptive CO2 distribution. Our innovative modular manifold allows you to add (or subtract) manifold blocks with ease, so you can expand CO2 supply, independently controlled, to multiple aquariums. Our modular CO2 regulators flawlessly and easily adapt to the expansion of your aquarium system, allowing you to use one regulator for multiple tanks, so you can save money and installation footprint. When you invest in our modular CO2 equipment, you get a single regulator that can grow with you and last for years of planted aquarium enjoyment.

Built to Last
We set up a new main room aquascape of 500g that had 3 separate return lines so we wanted 3 separate diffusers at one time. What was really cool GLA sent us color coded tubing for each individual diffuser inline. Made the co2 map look really nice. They also provided these neat co2 tubing clips for inside the cabinet. Its a good way to anchor down your tubing under a big tank. Better than having tubing falling all over the place. This regulator has been perfect. Not an issue to speak of. Its very nice, we keep it polished with polishing wipes and its our pride of our whole aquarium system. It keeps those bays fed thats for sure!
Im using this on a 350g and although overkill I wanted to make sure I had enough flow to the tank. A dual manifold would have been plenty as I run two inline diffusers in series. Needle valve adjustment is very precise and the stability is spot on everyday. The watertight chord grip is a nice touch to the solenoid. Having the LED indicator is nice just to view from a distance and see its powered. Very pleased.
The DS-3 is a superior regulator to all the rest. I can only say that because I own many, and a few are older GLA models. The new DS series from GLA stands alone in all aspects. Its a true dual stage and I like that I can run this without bubble counters. This regulator has been working flawlessly for 6 months on my 300g. Thank y ou GLA!
After several failures with cheaper regulators I decided to invest in the quality of a GLA controller. Setup was straightforward, documented well in the accompanying instructions. Thread onto my CO2 tank, add water for the bubble counters, connect tubing, adjust pressure and watch the steady parade of bubbles. Plants are quite happy. Me too.
