Pump fitting to water plants.

Hi guys I am new here and my first question is as follows:

I have a little DC waterpump that pushes about 3L/min. I need this water to be diverted equally into 4 different tubes. So basically what i need is something like this:
qqqqqqq /====o
qqqqqqq/ /====o
i=====( )
qqqqqq\ \====o

where 'i' = water out from the pump to the splitter and 'o' = water out from splitter. q is just formatting

What is something like this called? It needs to fit the output of the pump which has a diameter of about 6mm. Cheers!

OK i had to look at a drill bit chart to see how big 6MM was you could build your own with plastic tubing and some brass slip on fittings so from left to right the L______I____(I)____I______L *<<(turn it) (L) are 90 degree (I) are TEEs this one (I) is also a tee but faces the pump so that is the water being sent into the header.the 4 discharges will be the 2(L)s,and the 2(I)s .you might consider sizing down the 4 takeoffs so the header pressure is more distributed evenly.HD has all this stuff .....6MM is like 1/4 plastic tubing size ....down here.
