Adding another battery box

I am adding another 24G battery & battery box to my 5er. Just wondering if It is safe to tap into the existing vent hose with a Y or T fitting so both batteries vent from the same vent hole? Or, do I need to add another vent to the outside and vent the boxes separately?

Tap into existing hose that's what I did.

Thanks Turbs! Did you use some sort of T or Y fitting? If so, is that something you can find at a hardware store? Thanks
