The intake tube is clear I don’t know why they wouldn’t just make it black. Does anyone have a problem with alge in the tube like does it look filthy ? I know it’s just alge but with a clear tube must look bad

I have black tubes everywhere because I like the look. However, the tubes DO need cleaning occasionally and the clear tubes ALWAYS alert you when they should be cleaned. They'll embarrass you enough to clean them. I don't think this is a bad thing.

And they look brand new and clean after each cleaning.

EDIT: In any case ... you can change almost any aspect of your filter. I usually don't run any of my filters with the "stock" intakes (or outtakes for that matter).

I have a 206, 2x 306, 406 and FX4. They're mostly hidden behind plants so not very noticeable. They're really easy to clean so it's not been an issue for me.

I think he's talking about the intake tube.

Algae will always be part of your aquarium, think of it as patina is to a leather couch
