This doesn't really answer your question, but I am using a set of generic brand 17mm lily pipes that I got off Amazon for about 35 bucks with my SunSun 304b. I had to use straight adapters to step down the hose size from 3/4" to 5/8". Not an optimal solution, but it does work if you can't find anything.

I haven't seen anything larger than 17mm.

What I had to do was go to Ace Hardware and buy step down valves and then purchase hose that would fit 17mm Lily pipes.

Sorry that's my best solution.

Do! Aqua makes a 20mm inflow. I forgot about that. It's $120. You'd still have to use a 17mm outflow.

I got a big surprise when I ordered my Sunsun, not realizing the tubing size was bigger. I cut about 6" of the larger tube to keep attached to the filter, then used the regular 5/8" tubing to stick inside of it. Some PVC glue and gear clamps and it worked great!

ADA makes 17mm outflow and 20mm inflow. It comes with the Superjet ES2400.

Alan, did you really pay 215 bucks for a piece of bent glass with some holes in it? Although, I can admit that if I had the money, I'd totally have a superjet.

Edit: Ops. I didn't read the whole thing. Geez. Be careful with those. Lol

Lily pipes come with the superjet filters.

I got suckered into getting a superjet 2400 lol. This thing powers an inline heater, uv, co2 reactor and still has plenty of flow. I broke the inflow pipe and recently got a set of ss pipes from Aquavas. I'm too lazy to do the routine cleaning of glass lily pipes. They get dirty very fast and green algae is growing inside the tube because the unit sits right under the lights. Even though ADA lily pipes are fragile and expensive but it creates a nice whirlpool when used with the Superjet filter. My fishes loved the current.

Good to know. I was under the impression that aquavas only sold their stuff as a really expensive set. How much were just the pipes? Are they the really long ones?

I believe they are $180. These are the long pipes. You will have to drill 2 holes on the side of your tank. Other than that it looks better in one long stainless pipe without the tubing. You can also cut it shorter too :-). I'm still waiting for someone to make a stainless steel lily pipe.
