Lily pipe/glassware for eheim 2211 canister filter recommendations?


Hi I am new to the forum and some of these tanks look superb (same with aquascapeworld) anyway

I am going to buy an eheim 2211 cannister filter with 12mm and 16mm diameter.
I would like recommendations of lily pipes for a nano tank.
thanks a lot

Check ebay search lily pipes. You will get some hits that will be cheaper than ada/do-aqua equipment. I have never owned any of theses but I do plan on purchasing a set when I get on emersed HC carpet done and my eheim filter comes.

Inflow 13 mm
Outflow 10 mm

Next time just use the 'search' function, people ask this a lot.

As for types, try Cal aqua, do aqua, ADA, nag aqua... Or eBay brand.

Good luck!

Hi sorry I'm new to the forum, thanks so are you sure that all I have to do is shove these into the green pipes and there won't be any leakage ?
+ Does it matter that my canister filter is next to my tank as I cannot put it beneath my tank because it is on a kitchen surface.
thanks

If the pipes and tubing are the same size the fit will be nice and snug and you'll wonder how you'll ever get the pipes off to clean them .

It's cool, we're all new once.

I've never even owned an eheim filter... too expensive and for $50 less I grabbed a zoomed 501 for my mini-s. But yes, they'll fit fine. And it doesn't matter, just put the filter next to your tank. It makes no difference where the filter is.

For a filter you won't really see (no one photographs the filter lol) it doesn't make that big a difference. (Eheim IS a better filter by far though afaik)

Lets remember the point of the forum is to ask questions and discuss things...

As far as your recommended sizes I would worry about the size difference being an issue and try and use sizes as close as possible to the tubing.

So if I would need a 10mm outflow and 13mm inflow, would I have to buy the lily pipes separately (one 10mm outflow, 13mm inflow)? If not how would I fit say a 10mm set into a 13mm hose comfortably? thanks

I just set up a 3g using the 2211 canister filter and do aqua lilly pipes from Aqua Forest aquarium. You can order them separately to get the correct sizes. I went with:
Violet Glass・mini (outflow) MP-1 10D (140-541) 10mm
Violet Glass・mini (inflow) MV-1 13D (140-542) 13mm
