Finnex PX360 hose size?

I'm looking to invest in some lily pipes in my nano tanks down the road, but I can't seem to find what the size of the hoses are on my Finnex PX360 are...

Anyone know???

I got a 12mm SS prefilter and it fit the outflow tubing of the 360 perfectly.

I think the point where the hoses connect to the filter is exactly two feet below the rim of my tank. I built a shelf on the side to keep the filter below the table top, but still within it's pumping range. At the height I have it at, there is no noticeable slow in flow rate. In fact, my hair grass and fish look like they are in a windy field.

Just went downstairs to measure it and the bottom of the filter is 22.5 inches below the lip of the tank.
