I'm looking for some different sizes of clear pvc-2 and half inches and smaller. Any suggestions?

Thanks

tap plastic, it's cheap too. you can even bend it using a hot blow dryer if you fill the pipe with benable wire. thats so it doesn't collapse. good luck

Just an FYI, Lowes nor Home Depot have clear PVC. I hit up both places this week, and only carried the regular PVC.

Thanks everyone, I found what I needed at tapplastics. They do sell everything within reason. I talked to a sales rep. and he was very helpful & full of ideas.

OK, I'll ask. What does one do with clear plastic PVC for the hobby? A fish breeding project?

I would guess a cave for some Ancistrus or Plecos

Hehe, only I know the real answer to this one .

Matt, I doubt the ancistrus would breed in clear pipe.. because it seems that the fry prefer dark areas until they get bigger. It is a good guess though, kinda like the ghost knives as they "feel" secure in there.. even though they can be seen.

Think African cichlids... that's all I have to say
