Return pump and tubing question.

My tube on my return pump won't stay on. Can I use a stainless steel hose clamp on it?

No. Don't use metal in a saltwater setup ever. Just use silicone.

That's actually what I was looking for prob going to have to order it. Regular hardware stores don't carry hopefully one of my LFS will have it. Hopefully I can find one soon to get the stainless steel off but don't have a choice right now unless I want to take the risk of either flooding the house or losing the fish. I have no corals and only 2 small damsels right now tank is pretty newly setup.

Just turn it off and get the metal out.
