Tip of the Day – 5/13/2011


When using soft plumbing, it’s best to go with black vinyl as opposed to clear. The black tubing doesn’t let in any light, which keeps algae from growing in the lines and blocking water flow. The algae blockage could lead to failing overflows and an overflowing aquarium if it is allowed to grow in thick enough. Also, the black tubing just looks so much more stylish in the aquarium, so there’s that added bonus as well.
