    Only place I can think of is Maizey plastics.

    What is the internal diameter of the airline you want to use with the rigid pipe?

    RO tubing is probably your easiest bet, more or less the same size as airline tubing, can use airline tubing fittings with a bit of force.

    Thanks for the replies everyone.

    I want to remove some red bubble algae Im starting to get by attaching airline tubing to the rigid tube you can siphon the bubbles out and if it breaks the spores get sucked out as well, thats the plan at least.

    @hotdog83 @SeanH isnt acrylic and perspex the same? Anyway I want something that is completely rigid.

    I once went to a kiddies party and managed to take a few of the pipes the balloons are attached to.
