Just use 13mm for both in/outflows. Plenty of knockoff brands w/ 12"+ inflows in that tubing size. You can get a 5/8" to 1/2" plastic hose reducer at Home Depot for cheap. I've run my 2217 like that...

It's also been a few years since I kept them last, but light wasn't a problem for me. But, I might have found the eggs a bit later in development too, always stuck to my hands when trimming the tank,...
