I agree, the clip-n is technically larger size 3.5cm x 5cm but I think that's for the entire piece & I like that it hangs outside the tank itself.

Thanks for the info... I didn't think about the longer tube affecting it's workings. That's good to know. Would a good place be next to the intake lily, opposite side of the tank from the diffuser? like this:
