Go to the plumbing section in Rona and grab whatever foot length you need.

If you're looking for the gravel cleaning tube as well check out our sponsor BigAlsOnline. Browse Catalog

I have one available but unfortunately I'm in vancouver. If you can have it for $15 if you can find a way to get it to maple ridge. I'll also accept trades.

remember to get the hose material, or a more rigid tubing. the cheapeast stuff kinks way to easily. I bought it for my filter without realizing and was only able to keep it on the outtake since the intake would collapse it (thats how pliable the crap is). You may find that a garden hose will work fine, you can always cut off the ends, it'll be probably cheaper than /ft lengths

What sized tank? For bigger tanks, I like larger ID hoses, faster to get water in and out - something to think about if you go to Rona's.

I just got back from rona... I got a 60 gal and 72 gal... they set you up with an adapter to the sink... that threads on to it... then you run a clear hose from the sink to the tank... no more lifting heavy 5 gal buckets... worth the 30 bucks.,... exspecially if you have discus... we should run a page on this site with secrets of saving like this... prety sure this one runs alot of money from the pet store

Waterchanges blows - anything to make it easier and faster.

It's fine to run the clear hose from the sink, how were you planning on siphoning out the water? Bare bottom or gravel?

For my bare bottom tanks, I use this:

Safety Siphon Aquarium Drain

I age my water and use a utility pump to pump water back to my tanks.
