You have to be a little careful. Some do contain a little oil (to help make a seal in the gun). I think the better brands mainly use pure CO2, but you would have to check on that particular brand.

Fluval also uses threaded bottles. Looks like the BB gun ones aren’t. Might take some brain storming to get around that.

I think you're stuck with the Fluval ones, if you don't want to purchase anything new. I don't think there's any way to adapt it, since the threading is proprietary
