I've used both several times on tanks, and had no real problems with either. The spa flex really isn't all that flexible without heat forming it to what you want. I generally use some flex on external pump inlets/outlets to try to isolate any vibration, but other than that I use mostly PVC.

I will say you need to be a little careful about gluing up the flex then bending it etc right away to fit other fittings. Its needs to cure up a little before you move it around too much.

Talking reef website had a cool story about a PVC pipe bender that looked pretty slick, and could maybe be rented? I thought about looking into that next time.
