I run a canister on my fresh setup. I prefer the smooth tubes due to detritus buildup. You can clean them with effort. Pull them off, place in the sink with hot running water. Then bend the tubes, and push the bend up the length of the hose. This will loosen the stuck on stuff. Rinse it under the hot tap. Did any of that make sense? I could try and video what I mean if not.
Bought a very long brush and that cleans it very well. What's the type of tubbing your using

Eheim Plastic Hose 3 Meter 12/16 mm Thisnis what came with my filter. You’d have to know your diameter though. I have used what you can find at the hardware store, just clear plastic tubing over in the plumbing area
I use the 9 / 12 from my skimmer intake to outside and both my returns to the big tank are bigger versions! ;)

Never thought I'd see the day where you said you were proud of someone.

You must be turning over a new leaf this year, I'm proud of you Chris :)

Wanna make a wager? Your nitrates will be down by 30%+ before our new tank is done.
@sfin52 bet her it will be down 50% and we will talk, I'll take a cut and talk to Derek to get things adjusted in our favor

Hey hey, Don't you have some Royals to entertain now?
The only person I entertain is myself and that's done easily enough with a YO-YO

Do you believe the benefits of a UV sterilizer to be a Myth or Reality?
