Clear Hose

Most, if not all, canister filters have hoses that are not clear. I need to get some hose for the return on my reactor and need to know what the downside is of using clear vinyl hose. Can someone help?

can't really help you on the question part, but my eheim came with green colored clear hoses. Though based that eheim thought it would be ok, then I'd wager that clear hoses are ok.

I think people stay away from clear because of the gunk that collects in the tubing. I think if you go with clear you will have to clean your tubing more often to avoid the unsitely brown.

But do you just not see it with dark, or does the clear make it accumulate? If it is just a matter of it not looking good I don't care because you won't see the hose.
