I have some used FX5's I'm setting up , looking to upgrade hoses , since current ones are too short.
What are you guys using for replacement hoses outside of the OEM Fluval 1" ID ribbed?
that doesn't kink and allow use of OEM clamps?

I am running this clear plastic hose that can be found at a hardware store or at lfs. I’m sure it is cheaper at Hardware store tho.

I also have a long hose attached to one of the fx5 fittings that is long enough that it goes to my sink. At wc time I run an rv waterline hose from my tap to the tank, while the fx5 return goes to sink and I change roughly 50-75% in about 20-30 min.
