do you know the Flow Grow board?
There they tested some of them.

If u want High Quality buy the ADA ones..

Im going to order the 13mm Set the next days for my
new 160L Naturetank.
Just because im running out of money :(

especially these one can brake very easy, because the glass is thinner than other ones. all is made in china!

hello, i had ones, and some have broken very easy, because of the cina quality, you have to be extremly carefully.

Just out of curiosity, why would one go for glass tubing?

When they are clean; if they are ever clean after ward, they look almost transparent. So your tank won't have any intrusive instruments that is an eye sore to some people.

what is camouflage, do you mean "ehein green"???

i hate the green plastic, so is the glas a really nice option an it's very easy to clean, also.

hehe, no, that kind of green still has to appear in nature :)
I always organise the plants etc. to camouflage the tubes.
But in small tanks, especially if they are to look nice, glass sounds like a good idea.
