I ordered a bunch of 3/4 and 1 inch plastic hose clamps from brs just to be safe and literally none of them fit my 3/4 tubes. Anybody bought some from ace hardware or Home Depot that are reef safe they can point me in the direction too? Thanks. 

I think those clamps only fit the braided type vinyl tubing with a larger OD. I just use nylon zip ties if below water line or near salt spray.

You got bit by my mail order fears.  Is my understanding of Size, the same way they're quoting it.   When first ordering, I usually order a range of sizes to figure out what I really need.  (Yes I have a box of, Not-the-right-size stuff.)

Yes I think you might be right it is for braided but I bought a few 3/4 and 1 inches so I felt like I should be safe but I received some too small and some too big but none the right size 😂 nylon zip ties might be the winner as it will be under water 👍🏻

I get mine at ace hardware. They usually seem to have the oddball fittings and such I can’t find other places. Between work and reefing I’m usually there twice a week. They know me and love that I always bring a challenge 

Nice I appreciate that, I ended up going to ace and getting just the white nylon zip ties to use under water and above water in places they seem to work fine! I wish my ace was like that they always seem annoyed when I ask about stuff for the tanks!
