Black Vinyl Tubing will help keep light from entering your plumbing like traditional clear tubing will. The black color also keeps things looking sharp and clean.
Five Sizes Available:
- 1/2" ID x 5/8" OD
- 3/4" ID x 1" OD
- 1" ID x 1 1/4" OD
- 1 1/4" ID x 1 1/2" OD
- 1 1/2" ID x 2" OD
Black Vinyl Tubing is sold by the foot. Just put in how many feet you need total, and we will send you a single piece that long.
In most cases, any standard vinyl or silicone tubing will work just fine, but if you want your reef tank looking good, try the black vinyl tubing. The black tubing keeps light from entering while water is flowing through the tubing, keeping algae from forming inside of the tube and restricting flow over time, not to mention is just looks better too.

When selecting the tubing, if you have a 1" barbed fitting you will want to use 1" ID Vinyl Tubing along with a 1" Ratchet Clamp.
Will be a snug fit, heat with hair dryer By J.J.H. on 9/2/2018J.J.H. would recommend this product to a friendI had a tough time fitting the 1/2 inch ID (inner diameter) tubing on a 1/2 barb, until I used a hair dryer to heat the end and made it pliable enough to work it on. Of course, once connected, I appreciated the extremely snug final fit when I realized that the last thing you want is an ill-fit (loose) that is going to spring a leak. I had a total of 10 connections to make, and to me it was still worth the extra effort for the peace of mind end fit. I give it 5-stars.
Thick, quality, sturdy rather than flexible By ReefPammy on 3/8/2018ReefPammy would recommend this product to a friendHose is thick, feels heavy, is very durable, and strong rather than "flexible". Note: if you are attempting a curve or corner, please use an elbow or flexible tubing, instead; because this tubing is built for the long-haul, rather than corners! It is "exactly sized" to fit it's Barb's, and manufacturing process is excellent. From my experience, the 1 1-4 inch diameter could achieve curves of 10 degrees over six inches. "Get the elbow" if you have serious angles! Lol
Would the 1/2" ID x 5/8" OD tubing fit for the BRS reactor?
Do you know what size tubing would fit on the Red Sea 425 return hose?
Thank you for reaching out.
The Red Sea Reefer 425 uses. 3/4 ID tubing for the return hose.
Please let us know if you have any other questions.
Have a great day!
