    Hello,
    I've seen Tom and others mention Tygon tubing for CO2 line. Is this the stuff? I don't see "CO2" indicated and don't know if that is relevant. I presume Tygon is used for various gaseous applications but am checking in.

    Second question - what is "standard" size for CO2 line. Is this the 1/8 I.D. tubing? (what size do I get, I have SUMO regulator and AM1000 reactor).

    thanks,

    Yep, that's the stuff.
    It is thicker than typical tubing and more mallable.

    I like the Tygon® Laboratory Tubing R-3603. It is cheaper at USPlastic than AquaticEco.com.

    The 4 mm ID, 3/32" ID and 1/8" ID can be used on various CO2 products that we use.
    I like the 1/8" ID x 1/4" OD. It has a thicker 1/16" wall thickness than the others which have a 1 mm or 1/32" wall thickness.

    Lee's brand elite and sleek tubing are made out of pvc. < $.50/foot.
