If you mean the Fluval 205, this link would indicate that the ID is 14.5mm (.57 inches)

That falls right between the 1/2 inch and 5/8 inch hydor inline heater sizes. I am not sure which is best. Does anyone have any input?

Are you using the factory fluval hoses or are you using vinyl tubing?

20g high and 10g planted low tech tanks.

I have a 206 which is same thing. So the tubing that works directly with aquastop is the 5/8. It is on an ada mini-m which has 1/2" lily pipes so I have to reduce it out of the 206. If you are using 16mm lilies go with the 5/8. Also ditch the fluval hoses. They are craptacular.
