17mm Lily Outflow for Nano?

I’ve got a 17mm nano spin outflow on a new 9 gal setup. Not happy at all with the flow and looking to switch to standard lily.

The only thing is, for the life of me I can’t find one that’s suitable for a nano setup. Seems like every “nano” lily is designed for smaller hose sizes.

And the standard lily pipes jut way too far out into the tank (they don’t have the extra bend that nano lily pipes do).

I don’t want to use a reducer on the hose if I can avoid it.

Suggestions? Anyone?

I have not installed it yet, but it is shorter. They also have input tubes.

Thanks! I looked at that one. Only issue is it doesn’t have the extra bend to pull the outflow back against the glass, so it sticks way out into the tank about 1/4 of the width. Not the best aesthetic... and there’s some woodwork there that would make it a tight squeeze.

I might opt for this jet, but wonder if the flow would be too much. https://www.amazon.com/JARDLI-Glass-.../dp/B01K4J94LC
