connect python suction end to an ahem 16/22 hose

I've got this 30 foot eheim 16/22 hose that I want to use with one of those photon suction end plastic thingies. Any idea how I should connect the two properly considering the hose sizes are so different?

You might try a smaller hose that just barely fits over the python connection, and then the Eheim hose slips over it. Add a tight hose clamp, and you may be set.
