need new inflow tube

I have a 2026 Eheim canister filter that I recently set up. I had to replace the o-ring and main seal since it was leaking and really did not prime. Which isn't, bad as Iv had it for 9-10 years. The last 6 years its been sitting in the basement unused. Its the 1st time iv ever replaced anything on it. I also bought a new propeller since it was a good deal. Only cost around $50.

I also had to shorten the canister intake as its seal is bad. So now I'm looking for a new inflow and maybe outflow. The only ones I can find are green and look totally different from mine which are gray.

Is there and glass or any inflow that looks nice but would work in a 75gallon tank. That will not cost more then $30-$40 lower the better

If I understand the problem? You need the parts for the water from the canister to the tank and have 16mmID/22mm OD tubing and don't want the green? Sounds like you need the "installation kit"?
Somewhat pricey but very adaptable to fit different situations.
Set two is back to the tank.
One spot to find them:

There are a number of options, in addition to the eheim intake/outlet kit, there's also glass lily pipes you can get online. But from personal experience the glass needs cleaning a lot more because the algae becomes so visible. Or you can take some krylon black spray paint and paint an eheim green intake/outlet black.
