|Subtletanks91||So even the connector that connects the hose to the outflow won't connect to a diy lily pipe?|

|Subtletanks91||This is simply amazing. After reading this I want to make my own spray bar and Lilly pipe for the fluval 405 but I have the rigid hose do you think the pipe and bar will fit snug into the grey connected on the hose?|

Well, I've gathered all the items I need. Luckily here in San Diego we have a place called Ridout Plastics that had everything I needed! Saved me some shipping. I picked up a Exacto Razor Saw to do the cutting and a 7 in 1 Emory board for the polishing
Wish me luck

Smooth ends on lily pipes
If the tube you are using works the same as plexiglas after you cut the bulb in two and smooth the edge with sand paper, heating the raw edge will melt it slightly and it will be smooth and clear. Try it on a scrap piece. Great write up.

Way too small to be useful for anything, but I was having fun playing with some surplus glass pipettes and a butane torch
