I think its due to the fact that with a paintball canister you'll be refilling that all the time...
I did find a source for a single gauge regulator that is threaded for paintball tanks. So, there is at least one primary part that could be used for gassing a tank now and then. I admit most paintball tanks are small 9-20oz but there are the backpack models that let you run fast hard and Sun up to Sun down without a re-charge. All sports equipment always goes to the extreme, man demands it. With the 9oz and one 20oz they would last quite a while with the planted 30 gal tank. Besides I very much enjoy tinkering with stuff like this.

Thanks for responding to my thread.

Don

There was a thread on apc where someone used a paintball ASA, some brass fittings and cheapo needle valve available at your nearest home depot /lowes for a very very nice paintball CO2 system.
