"Nano" CO2 tank

Has anyone (disregarding cost) considered using one of the CO2 canisters favored by paintball enthusiasts for mini-tanks (2.5 gallon and up)? I'm trying to figure out a setup for a 2.5 AGA tank. Shouldn't be too dificult. Any pointers? (Again...let's forget about cost for a few minutes...I'm really interested in this.)

On my 1 gallon and 5 gallon tanks, I just use the little C02 natural system that they have at pet warehouse:

Honestly though, you would get the same thing by using a 20 oz pop bottle and some sugar and yeast, DIY style. The only reason I bought that little system is because at the time I didn't know the sugar-yeast formula that they use in it.

Two 1 GA desktops, a 5 gallon, a 2.5 gallon, a 10 gallon, a 20 gallon, a 25 gallon, and two 75 gallon tanks, all planted.
I am an expert on algae, so ask me if you have questions. I know how to grow it, just not how to get rid of it.
