Are there any recommendations on 13mm filter hose/pipe? I have a TetraTec EX600 but I noticed some ribbed Fluval hose - would this be less likely to kink on bends than normal tubing?

it's less likely to kink but the stuff is so bad that it acts like tying a knot in the tube.
I get kinking on my ex1200 where the lilly pipes go down to 13mm and a partial cure is to wrap the places most prone to kinking in tightly wound tape to reinforce the area.

Cheers, I'd noticed those items on AE, I'll stick with some of those alongside some normal tubing :)
