Serious answer here. Check the water levels in each tank. Chances are the one that fills fastest is set to shut off at a lower level.
Where, in the nursery rhyme, does it say Humpty Dumpty was an egg, and why would the King's horses, creatures without opposable thumbs and no propensity for puzzle solving, try to put him together again?

This will seem strange - I couldn't believe it myself. I had one tank refill rate at about 90 seconds and the other at about 25 seconds. When I changed out the mechanism inside the tank that did little to nothing other than both filling a couple seconds faster. I then removed the flexible hose from the wall shut-off valve to the tank bottom fitting. Inside the hose was a device placed there purposely by the previous owner (I'm guessing he was the one from the other weird stuff he did) which looked like it was maybe a flow-restrictor for either rate or pressure, not sure what the purpose was. When I removed that device, the fill rate of the slow tank changed to the same rate as the faster tank. So-o-o-o... Changing the tank mechanism might be a good idea (change out the flapper valve at the same time) and change the flexible line from the wall to the tank bottom connector. You might not have a restrictor like I did but your line may be crimped inside or clogged with debris. The only other item would be the wall shut-off valve but that is not likely the issue. Good luck.

I'd guess that the flexible supply line flow restrictor was intended for a sink.

Could also be the mixer valve that mixes in a little hot water, to keep the tank from sweating.
