i pretty much do the same but i soak my nets etc. in water with a tiny bit of potassium permanganate (just enough to make the water turn pink).

i am wondering how people clean their syphon tubes. i use pipe cleaners for my larger syphon tubes but recently i got a small syphon back from a mate and the tube(10mL in diamater) is full of mould what would be the best way to get this clean?

you can buy these pipe cleaners which have small bristles at the end

and the metal tube is flexible. i cant explan it properly...but they sell it at most fish shops

one end is a small brush, and the other end is a a larger brush

i use the small brush for my tubes at 10mm diameter, and it works well! smile.gif

Alternatively you can get some heavy gauge fishing line and a piece of rag and thread the line through the hose, then pull the rag through (after tying it to the fishing line first) dry.giflaugh.gif

If it's filthy hose, you can try a strip of scourer pulled through several times, but beware, this might break while in the hose, making it hard to remove.
