A finishing touch for the tank

Anyone who has an airstone or other bubble feature will be familiar with the hassle of trying to keep vinyl air line from looking unsightly beneath the surface of an otherwise tidy aquarium. Vinyl tubing is especially annoying in a "High" Style tank with an 18" depth. Rigid tubing run from the surface to the bottom next to the heater or filter uplift tube is nearly invisible, and makes it easy to pull up or relocate an airstone. The rigid tubing can be held in place using a couple of Lee's Airline Holders, or it can be strapped against the heater or a filter inlet tube, Etc. Using cable ties.
If desired, the tubing can be bent sharply, say to make a hook to hang over the edge of a tank, by heating with a hair dryer and bending around something of suitable diameter, such as the neck of a soda or beer bottle and allowing the tubing to cool.
My only complaint lies with the way Petco ships the tubing: They bend it in an arc in order to fit it into a cardboard carton. Come On Petco, stock some mailing tubes. They cost less per piece to ship than the 18" x 12" carton you used to ship my order.
The tubing can be straightened by gently warming with a hair dryer and bending it back to shape..
I would recommend this to a friend!

The tubing works perfect!!!
But, "one thing"
It was shipped in a box and the tubing was curved.
You should ship this type of product in a crush proof tube so it won't get bent.
I need it to be straight for my air stone.
When it's straight it looks much better in the aquarium.
See it on the right side next to the heater.
It blends in real well.
