Hey Everybody, got some questions about pony bottles.

I've got a 13 cubic footer that I use for deep or light penetration wreck dives. I mount it on my main tank, behind my right arm, with the first stage towards my feet. With the poney, primary reg, and my octo, I've got 3 regs hanging off me. That's a lot of clutter. Besides getting an Air II or some solution requiring the ditching of the pony bottle, does anyone have any suggestions or pictures/diagrams for the optimal setup?

I was thinking of making one of those bungee necklaces for the pony bottle reg and keeping the octo clipped in the lower right chest area. Does anyone have a better idea?

My other idea, which seems problematic, is to basically stow the octo by wrapping it up and bungeeing it between the pony bottle and main tank (out of my way and reach) when I use the pony bottle. However, in the event of an octo freeflow, this seems like a good way to lose all of my air.
