Need Regulator advice

Well Folks, finely saved up some money (about time all these lovely school loan payments) I was looking at buying AquaticLife CO2 Regulator with Lighted Solenoid Valve. Along with the paintball adaptor for my 20 gallon h planted tank. (pretty sure its a single stage reg)

Long story short I need to go with a paintball CO2 tank due to lack of space and might have to move in a couple of months. I have done diy co2 with some success but decided its time for an upgrade.

Anyone ever use these, or have anything to recommend me, I'd appreciate it.

Aquatic Life stop their normal regulator series, it was very expensive and was similar to Aquatek. The Aquatic Life "Compact" is by a Taiwan company and actually has another outlet that is plug at the side.

Here is my set up:

You can avoid issues of a End of Tank dump (rare) with a JT Paintball level indicator. But I really recommend you look at the DIY route, the price for this set up was very expensive and I would use the money to build a custom, which I'm still working on.
