Nice. That thick hose is harder to clamp down. The thinner wall vinyl tubing is a bit better and probably wont even need clamps. I personally used my eheim plumbing.

the thick hose is harder to clamp but I found the thinner stuff can actually get punctured with those el cheepo hose clamps I got so I used heavier walled hosing nad metal barbed fittings you can crank those clamps till they embed themselves and still be good.
