Use your saliva on the barbs and the inside of the tube.

If you don't wanna do that, try hot water on the end of the tube.

try both above..
if you put hot water on the tubes it'll make then expand so that they'll slide more easily over the connectors.

also using some kind of lubrication on the connectors, (whether it's your saliva or otherwise) could also help.

Wrong section my friend. . .


Moved.

I was going to suggest a little liquid soap, but you got it figured out. Next time. . .

I would also suggest flipping your reservoir over so the inlets are on the bottom. That would shorten the amount of tubing you'll need and clean things up a bit.
