Corrosion/Oxidization on tank regulator?

Pulled the reg off of my Draxxus tank to get it hydro'd, and noticed some corrosion on it. I've taken the reg off multiple times and never seen this before. It's perforated it's way into a light coating throughout what I can see below the threading.

I don't have this problem on my PE tank. Not sure if it's something to be worried about. Should I attempt to clean this thing up? What type of solvents should I use?

Or, should I just buy a new reg? I was thinking of getting a Ninja regulator for my PE tank (68/45) and would then put that PE reg on my Draxxus tank (48/45 stubby).

Thanks for the help guys. I've attached some cell phone pics to give you an idea of what I'm talking about.
