Zoomed 501 filter question.

I want to connect one of these to a 3 gallon that I have, but I want to use glass lilly pipes. Does anyone know the size of the tubing that comes with it? I want to use the Cal Aqua Labs pipes.

the 12/16 Eheim type fit which I believe is 1/2 inch.
Works for me and my ecco.
I have those pipes the zoomed tube won't fit.
That is why I bought the ecco.
I don't know the size of the zoomed but I know the tube is too small to fit.
You would need a say 1/4(whatever zoomed is) inch to 1/2 inch coupler.

I think it is around 3/8", don't have one anymore, but it is a bit larger than 1/4, and smaller than 1/2, so...

Inner diameter: 5/16 in
