Filstar tubing

Hi all. I know it's product question but nobody answers in that forum! And it's filtering my Malawi tank so it's cichlid discussion! So the clear intake and outlet tubing on my canister is really gross looking. U can't see it as tank back is covered but its discolored and almost looks like mold spots inside it. Do I clean these or is it ok to let them look grimy since they're hidden? Any hints how I clean them if so?

If you want to clean them you can get a cheap baby bottle brush and clean them out.

Ha. I just didn't see trying to clean 3 feet of tubing plus I wanted extra clamps and will be switching it onto a new tank in a few weeks!

You can get black tubing, blends in nicely
