Ginger tubing

Has anyone used or heard of Ginger tubing? My LFS has some in, but I've never heard of the brand. I am replacing my eheim tubing with clear. I was going to use the Lee's brand because I know its good stuff and fits well. I've never heard of this ginger stuff.

It's just a brand of tubing, has been okay in my experience.

Cheaper option would likely be picking up some tubing from your local big box hardware store. Comes in 10 and 20 foot segments. Plumbing section.

The stuff from Home Depot/Lowes doesn't kink up at all.

I stopped using Lee's because it tends to kink if you use too much of it. But I don't think you'll have a problem with any brand you go with as long as you aren't using more tubing than is absolutely necessary.

I'm going to use the eheim stuff under the stand and the clear stuff for outside. I guess any clear tubing should work

It will if it's the proper size.

Just buy a bit more than you need in case you need to test a few configurations out.
