stainless steel lily pipe

Hi, has anyone seen a stainless steel lily pipe with the lily shape output rather than the jet? Any recommendations on best quality brand; I have seen comments about rust issues on cheaper ones.

Fish+Plants thanks you!!

You're not going to find one. Having the output be shaped like a lily pipe means that it would be extremely expensive because of amount of work required to shape the steel.

You wouldn't want it. Since its not clear it's going to be too obstructing and defeat the aesthetics of a lily pipe.

Oh, duh! That makes sense!! I did not realize the lily pipe shape was so large. Would the stainless steel output be too strong then, more like a jet than a lily pipe? How does it connect to the canister pipe without leaking? Can you tell this is all new to me!?

The hose will fit over the barbed end of the pipe, typically it's tight enough to not cause a leak, however you can use hose clamps to secure the hose and eliminate any possible leaking (I do).
