paintball co2 for planted tank?

i work at a store that fills paintball co2 tanks all day long, has anyone used a paintball co2 tank for their planted tanks? a 20oz tank with a valve to regulate flow would run about $25, add a bubble counter and wouldnt that work? there are even inline guages that can be purchased. any downsides? a 20oz should last a few months supply, and only about $3 to fill

This has been brought up serveral times before, and in my memory, everytime shot down. The main issue was where to find a regulator and needle valve that would work/fit on a 20 oz. canister - no one seemed to find one. Is that what you mean by inline gauges? Does it have fine tuned metering capabilities?
