Suitable hoses for your aquarium
In this category of our webshop you can buy the right hose for the external filter of your aquarium. Especially aquascaping projects are often realized with transparent Lily Pipes and transparent hoses, effectively turning all filter equipment inside the tank virtually invisible. In aquaristics, the diameters 9/12, 12/16 and 16/22 mm are standard for filter hoses. Also filter inlets and filter outlets made of stainless steel or plastic can be upgraded with transparent hoses. You can find all common sizes of hoses in transparent design from well-known manufacturers such as ADA or Borneo Wild in our webshop. As a rule, no troublesome batch numbers or the like are printed on the hoses. The companies Chihiros and ADA offer particularly soft filter hoses. These are particularly flexible and can be easily put over the glassware. The products by manufacturer Borneo Wild are much more dimensionally stable and stronger. As a result, their hoses do not kink easily and are easy to clean.
