Air Line Management

Hello ... I'm new to this forum but not new to aquariums. Has anyone ever used these straps to hold air lines. Just doing some research before I purchase. Thanks ... http://www.wirestrap.com

No, the strips have glues that may contaminate the tank water. Check your lfs for suction cups that are used for airline tubing.

asc1963,
I have not used them. I'm sure they would be fine outside the tank. Not sure about inside with the adhesive.

click on my name and send me a pm and I'll try to help.

Good call on keeping the wife happy.
When she's happy I get to do more with the fish and less on the
honey-do-list. lol.
