Hob Filter Intake Tube Extension


Recommended Posts

  • Regular Member

For the 10 gallon quarantine and 20 gallon tropical tank I would like to have longer filter intake tubes since they reach only 1/2 (10 gallon) and 1/3 (20 gallon) of the tank down. Especially with the more or less bare bottom quarantine tank I'd love for the filter intake to suck most of the waste up right away.

Do I have to buy extensions at the LFS or can I go make some myself from thin pvc pipe? If it doesn't fit tight enough I can use silikone, I guess I should get that from the LFS rather than the hardware store.

Any advice?

If you got a place that does sprinklers or maybe a Homedepot might have rolls of hosing. Thats how I got mine :)

Yeah, I saw the rolls of hosing yesterday, but I forgot to bring that tube from the filter to see if it would fit. Is Vinyl Tubing alright for the tank?
