Will this co2 regulator kill my fish?

Picked this up super, super cheap.

Will this regulator dump and kill my fish, even with the ADA adjuster on it?

I have no experience with that regulator, but the dog looks kinda shifty.

What is on the paintball cylinder is best described as a "flow adjuster" and not a proper pressure regulator.

You may find it very difficult to obtain a steady CO2 flow rate with your current setup. I would highly recommend that you get a proper regulator (you can get one that fits CGA320 connections and then get an adapter for a paintball cylinder).
