    Where do you guys get those rigid clear tubes I see on DIY sponge filters? I see them from fish supply places, but I'd like them cheaper.

    I don't mean the very wide ones from Home Depot in the lighting department.

    Thanks.

    There are a variety of clear rigid tubes you can get from fish supply places on line or from places like HOT or Congressional. What size are you looking for?

    You may be able to find them at hobby or craft stores as well. But I bought mine at HOT, as they had the size I was looking for.

    Just various sizes. I'm not sure yet.

    I might just go with something different all together.

    I'd be willing to bet that you can find them at Michael's or other hobby/craft stores.
