I have a bubble counter and diffuser in one already. Also have a drop checker.

Whats the cheapest I can get away with while doing the job properly?

I've heard the paintball canisters aren't able to be regulated, is this true? I don't want the same problem as the cartridges.

paintball tanks can be regulated. I used to play paintball there are plenty of paintball regulators out there most bring the pressure down to around 800psi you would need another regulator to bring the pressure down further. Although I'm sure if you searched online someone somewhere has put together a paintball regulator system for aquarium use.
