    does anyone see any reason why I shouldn't use copper pipe to join two bits of filter hose together?
    cheers guys.

    copper in an acidic environment will be erroded to some extent if you have any inverts in the tank this can be detrimental to their health,
    you can buy stainless steel pipe in the same sizes as copper pipe which would be a safer option in my opinion.
