Nice setup, though.
Very good question.

Yes, the tank has to be vented. These bottles have the kind of caps that have what is called a pour hole. It's kind of a cap inside a cap. The way it works is that if you unscrew the cap a little you can pour out of the pour hole.

There's a couple of options for venting them. So far what I'm doing is in one of the caps I drilled a 1/8" hole through the inner cap. It vents all the time.

I left the other cap untouched. It's not vented so when I switch tanks I have to also switch caps. The reason I'm running it like that is so there's no possibility of a leak in the bottle I'm not using.

Another option would be to unscrew the cap a little and let it vent through the pour hole.
