Airline tubing annoyance
Why doesn't airline tubing come in one size everywhere? You get a roll that's nice, fits all your equipment and the next purchase elsewhere you end up with stuff that's so darned small one end might fit into an air pump but the other end won't fit your bubbler, sponge filter or a darned thing. I just spent 20 minutes tryng to get my airline tubing to fit my sponge filter.
Airline tubing should not be like buying car parts.
I will be buying all vinyl tubing after this and plastic is out!

I wonder if the tubing wasn't just cold, assuming you bought the right diameter. I soak the ends I'm going to connect in hot water out the tap for a few minutes to let it get soft. The tubing usually slips rights on and then shrinks to a nice tight fit.
