The setup I'm doing right now is all green because blue is too cliche. Everyone uses blue. I love the glow of the green much much more.

ok guys in our hobby the best tubing is one without something called plasticizer leech.

(i butchered the spelling on the word, but it sounds phonetically)

Basically what pasticiser leech is, its a coating on the inside of the tubing during process.
It allows the tubing to be more flexable.
Now flexable tubing = good tubing.. but not when the plasticizer disolves in solution over time.

What then happens is it starts to build up on the walls of the tubing. Yes its funny how it comes clear, and then dissolves, and then redeposits.

Draining your system accelerates this, as it allows area's with walls to build up that nasty residue.

This is why we tell you go with tubing which was ground up made for our hobby.

Feser Tubing is excellent, i havent had a problem with them yet in my years playing with it. And ive played with them since they first came out.

Primochill is my favorate tubing, because its solid... doesnt allow light bleed though.
I have had problems with algae, and i swore never to go back there again.

I highly recommend tubing from those two sources, unless ur a newbie.
If your new, your loop wont stay up longer then 2 weeks, and expensive tubing is a waste.

So go with something cheap like masterkleer, which does cloud... but at least u get your design down.

Once ur finalized... and u know you wont monkey with your loop, then go with the expensive tubing.


I also dont recommend u ever recycling tubing.

I'm using feser tubing atm great for me, decided to go back to them with the refresh, as Angrybutcher says tho don't buy the retail pack as the cut tubing is cheaper by the foot. I bought 10ft for my first loop and I have like 3ft leftover/wasted, so YMMV. I made a long fill tube though because i had so much extra:
