Paintball co2 tanks

I saw a 20oz paintball co2 tank at Walmart(I forgot the cost). I was just wondering, will the JBJ regulator fit on these tanks? Are the regulators a universal fit on all co2 tanks???

40 gallon SeaClear Acrylic, 192 watt Orbit Lunar PC, Filstar XP2, Filstar XP1, JBJ Regulator, Rhinox 5000 glass co2 diffusor, 9 watt UV sterilizer, Hydor Inline Heater, Pool Filter Sand substrate
Filstar pimp #53

How comes shoppings so stupid, looks at all this stuff I haves, what do I do's with it.

A simple use of the search button would have answered this question quite quickly.

But the short, simple, sweet answer is NO.

The neck and threads to a 20oz tank are smaller than the JBJ reg. Besides a 20 oz tank would prob last a month or 2 at max. you would be better off saving your money and going with a 5lb.

Save the paintball tanks for paintballs .. speaking of which, i ahvent played in a while .. maybe tomorrow ..

Also .. its not a good idea to purchase paintball supplies from superstores. they are very lax on who they sell to, and if you purchase equipment from them, they wont fix it b/c it is so cheap if it breaks down. paintball shops would charge alot of $$ to fix those guns for just that reason. Sorry, didnt mean to go off on a tangent.
