does it have to be a DYI solutions?
Does this have to be a DIY project, or would buying a ready made solution be ok?
If buying is ok, look up Eheim Install Set 1 - Intake (4005300) & Install Set 2 - Spray Bar (4005310). You can find them on Amazon or eBay and maybe your LFS could order them. The Eheim hardware is compatible with Fluval canister filters (both share the same size hosing 16/22mm*).
*You can use the ribbed hose that came with the Fluval or buy some vinyl tubing. Both the Fluval and some models of Eheim uses a 16mm ID 21mm OD hose. The closest we can get cheaply in the US is 5/8" ID with 3/4" OD, which works fine. You might need to heat the vinyl hose (use hot water)
