Default Converting C02 Regulator from Paintball tank to 5 lb.

Hello-- I have a typical regulator on a 20 oz paintball tank and would like to transition to a standard 5lb industrial C02 tank.
  1. Can common regulators be used for both kinds of tanks? I thought I read somewhere (and can't find it now to confirm) that industrial tanks are filled to a higher PSI and it will damage regulators used on paintball tanks;
  2. Where do I find a thread adaptor? I've looked at a few aquarium webstores, and on Amazon, and even though I'm 90% sure the threads are different, I can't find any evidence that an adaptor exists, . Maybe this is indirect confirmation of 1) above?
Thanks in advance for your help or leads to more info.
