Anyone know of a over rim airline guide?


Does anyone know of a clean looking airline holder that would hang on the rim of the glass? ideally i dont want a gang valve.

I have 3 air lines that will be used for my DIY autodoser.. i'm just trying to find a nice clean way to secure them to the tank

I've seen a couple that look like they might work on a fancy tank... the vertex looks pretty nice think it might be effort to track one down though. Hope that helps.

I'm planning on the same thing for my tank, I was originally going to go with inline but I don't think I can make it sufficiently leak proof.

I saw some insta brand ones cheap on ebay that look clean. Not as nice as the ones linked above, but perhaps less obtrusive. "ISTA CO2 Pipe Holder 2pcs 4/6mm AIR LINE - Airline Tee tube tubing valve pump"

I just ordered "The soft tube fixture mount for dosing pump for 4 tubes"
Clear and should be fairly stealthy

LOL, I couldn't figure out what you meant then I googled it... I love ebay descriptions sometimes. Let us know how she works out. I'm trying to sleuth out how I want to handle the exposed nature of the dosing lines. It's not an easy task to cleanly do with a rimless tank. I'm leaning towards "J Shaped Glass Tube". I have the U tubes, but I think they will be too short. I need to keep them out of the water to break the siphon. I also need to try to see if I can easily cut one of the sides to shorten it up.

The fastest and cheapest way is to make one out of ridgid air line. Heat it up and bend it to shape. You can make a soft bend j or put two right angle bends in it. Connect your soft line to it.
