Do lily pipes have to be 1mm bigger than the pipes?


Hello I have an eheim 2211 which has an internal pipe dimension of 9mm and 12mm. I really like the look of the nano magic pipes but I have heard that the lily pipes have to be 1mm larger than the pipe itself (I could go for 10mm lily pipes but its more expensive, bigger so doesn't look as good .
So is it true?
thanks

Yeah, you'll want to get the 10mm ones so that the fit is snug. You could get the smaller one but it may not fit right and will leak.
