In addition to HoleMaster's comments on which hose should go to which first stage,
- orientate/rotate the first stages such that all hoses will protude downwards (you will need to use different ports on the first stage), this will make you more streamlined with hoses being vertical rather than horizontal
- ensure you can access/manipulate all knobs while wearing the twins
- din fittings if you can afford it (less confusion with a-clamp knobs in case you need to isolate in an emergency)

just my 2 bits

thanks for the invitation. but staying in PD and working and diving :) makes it impossible for us to meet for the time being. so how long will you stay in MALAYSIA. maybe next time we can meet. and for your info i have dive solo (beach dive) with this setup last sunday at Tanjung Tuan (Cape Rachado) and man.. tell you how heavy and exhausting i have to carry and walk  to the dive site and get familiar with this setup.
as i in the water, i have some difficulty as the tank keep leaning to right and left. the dive last about 60 minute at 30 feet.
any advise how to keep the tank in place with my head up position.
cheers.

Solution to tanks moving - adjust your shoulder straps tighter, allow for only 2 or 3 fingers gap.
