If it doesn't stop eventually, it's probably just dirty (small spec of something keeping it from closing all the way.) You may be able to just blow it out or you may need to disassemble it if the...

If removing the tape and a new o-ring doesn't fix it, it could be defective. Pretty rare though.

Have you checked your paintball tank's o-ring for cracks/wear? Remove the tape. It's not going to do anything for you other than keep you from properly getting it screwed together.

Any of the inline counters can be put anywhere you want. Some people have them on the aquarium, I put mine near the regulator. Just personal preference. .

I personally prefer you use an inline glass bubble counter. It's just a lot less to go wrong.

That's for gardening. To use it on a fish tank, you'd need to replace that flow meter with a low flow needle valve. Doing it cheap as possible would probably cost about 10-15 bucks.

Not knowing what regulator you have the best advice I can offer would be to just keep an eye on your low pressure gauge. If it starts to climb more than just a couple psi, shut it down.

Those where too easy.

You may always chase me but you are always about 3 miles away.

If the gauges don't leak, leave them alone. My guess is that no good will result if you try and remove them. Looks like they've been epoxied in there. (For who knows why...)

Like rich said, you're not going to blow yourself up. It's really the opposite that's possible. Co2 is either going to suffocate or freeze you. If the cylinder gets too hot in a car, it's going to...

A pressure regulator drops that pressure down from roughly 900 psi down to a...
