VIV Lily Pipe Questions


Hello,

I am looking to set up a Mr.Aqua 12 Gallon aquarium. I would like to get some VIV Lily Pipes, or similar, to hook up to what seems to be the favorite choice canister filter, the Eheim 2213 Classic canister filter.

Here is a link to the lily pipes. Which one/size would fit this tank/filter? Or if there is a better filter please suggest it

I got the VIV Lily for this tank. Works perfect. Great flow and sucks in surface scum.

I have VIV lily pipes and an Eheim 2213. You need the 13 mm diameter version. On my boxes the model # is VI 1001 and VI 2001 for the outflow/inflow (The M type). From what I was told these are made in the same factory as the ADA versions.

I heard that I need two different diameters for either pipe?

I believe that is only for the eheim 2211 canister (which i have), and it does have two different sizes for inflow and outflow. I beleive all other larger canisters from eheim use the same size tubing for inflow and outflow though.

the 2217 has different pipe diameters for in/out flow too.

but the 2213 and 2215 has the same for both, 13mm.
