Steel vs Glass filter pipes

I was thinking about getting a set of stainless steel filter pipes.

I also am looking at glass ones.
pros and cons and your preference.

I just went thru this.

I keep breaking glass so I just changed over to SS ones. And love them!!

I don't have to clean them often and they won't break while trying to clean them.

And they are slightly cheaper. Depending on brand.

Where did you get them from?

Also how visible are they in your tank?

Thanks for the feedback H4n

I don't mind the steel look in the tank.

If only there were gorilla glass filter pipes. now there is an idea.

Ya I'd rather have nice ss pipe showing then algae glass pipes.
And then as often as you clean them to keep a cleaner look, youll eveually going break them.
