A cardinal rule for Scuba diving tanks is to never completely empty your scuba diving tank. When planning your scuba dives, it is important that you consider to complete your dive with enough air left within your scuba diving tank.
They rise to the surface.
the silly answer is you can store anything in a scuba tank that you can get in it!!. BUTthe serious answer is scuba tank were designed for compressed air and nothing else... using a scuba tank for natural gas is like driving around with a bomb in your car!!, the valves and collars of the bottles are not strong enough if there was a crash
The numbers on a scuba tank reveal 3 things. Serial no. of the tank. Type metal. and the current hydro date.

You can buy scuba tanks at the internet page "DiversDirect" or in a special diver store. Or you buy on Ebay a used scuba tank, its cheaper but the scuba tank could be defect or something else.
They usually do not need to be cleaned unless you are using a cylinder for nitrox.
it goes down
If the volume of a scuba tank filled with air doesn't change and its temperature remains constant pressure does not change. If no factors change the result will not change.
The empty weight of a 100 cubic foot steel SCUBA tank is approximately 33lbs.
The compressed air pushing against the inside of the scuba tank causes pressure inside it.
It goes up
I would think so, because there are two of them mixed together. Air in a scuba tank or anywhere else should be heterogeneous. A scuba tank filled with either oxygen or nitrogen would be homogeneous.
As far as I know, No you do not.
Depends on the size of the tank.
While SCUBA diving you are wearing a fabric vest that is known as your boucency compensator or your B.C. This also happens to be the vest that keeps your tank attached to your back. When you wish to float to the surface, you slowly put air (from your tank) into your BC. The air released in the vest is much less dense than the water and thus it travels to the surface pulling you with it.

No, the scuba apparatus will not fit a threaded tank.
its the scuba tank on the swimming guys back.
As long as no more air is pumped into the tank, or allowed to escape, the pressure will remain constant.
You can use a scuba tank, but that is it.
your local paintball field. Or you can purchase a scuba tank and adapter to fill the paintball tank with and every once in a while fill the scuba tank up if you live like out in the middle of nowhere
Different scuba gear types weigh different amounts. The oxygen tank is the heavy part of the scuba diving gear.
In order to begin scuba lessons, you will require an oxygen tank, a wetsuit, a mouthpiece, as well as flippers. Your scuba classes most likely offer these equipment.
