Where to buy clear PVC?

What kind of store carries this? I've never seen it at a hardware store. Should I try a pool supply shop or plumbing shop? I found some clear acrylic tubing, but it's in odd sizes and doesn't fit in standard PVC fittings.

I've never been able to find it at local places, so I've always bought it from Aquatic Eco.

Aquascape? I'm a crypt farmer.

It's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

That IS an aquascape, it's titled "The Vacant Lot".
