    6" acrylic tube know where i can get some??

    I'm looking for about a 14" piece of acrylic tube 6" dia with a wall thickness of 1/8 to 1/4 doesn't matter. I want to extend my protein skimmer. The skimmer is one of acrylic city's but no one is answering email and i see he hasn't posted in a while. I added a becket valve and new pump to much water flow need more height. If anyone has some please let me know or if you know of such place to order online. I live in Windsor, Ontario. Not much around here. Any info would be great.

    Thanks
    Jason

    I could probably go buy this at a local shop in Ottawa and ship it to you. Not sure of their prices but I could get back to you if interested. My email is matt_aumont@hotmail.com and I check it like 5000 times a day LOL.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Dix doesn't have any and if he ordered it, i would have to take all 6 feet of it. Really nice guy though.

    Matt can probably get you what you need at Canus. I've always shopped at Canus (because it's very close to my office.) They often have short pieces of acrylic tubing in their cut-off bin.
