Brass tees, nipples, and ball valves should do it

Can you use one for an aquarium as a substitute?

If it can handle the pressure, sure.

If you don't mind straying quite a bit from the norm, I built my own manifold utilizing push-connect fittings (instant tube fittings/John -Guest fittings, they go by several different names). You can see a write up on it here.

The design offers some good functionality and I have been very pleased with it.

I installed a CO2 distribution system throughout the brewery, all homemade manifolds are made out of black Acetal and disconnects are CPC brand white Acetal.

Example

Nope. Neither does the bottle. What's ever easiest.
