Depends on what you care more about a filter. Flow? Media room? Noise? Cost? And then choose the one that more suite your need. I personally will choose Eheim cuz I would love the extra room to house all the medias. Some may choose 406 cuz that I have heard has stronger flow.

The lily pipes are in place of the intake and spray bar tubes that come with the eheim. It's not a small airline hose. Maybe your confusing if you add co2. That is done with an airline size hose.
