lily pipes

  1. Equipment
    Hi all! I’ve currently got a glass lily pipe in my aquarium, which is 90cm long, 35cm deep, 50cm high. I’m curious as to if that’s enough circulation to get water flowing around all the hardscape and plants. Followup question: I’m considering switching to a stainless steel inflow/outflow if...

    I'm going to be getting some lily pipes for my 12 gallon long and thought I may as well check here before buying new. At the moment I'm looking at the Cal Aqua X1 and F2. I'd be interested in these or any similar lily pipes that are compatible with either 1/2" or 5/8" tubing. Additionally, if...

    I have a marineland c160 with 5/8 tubing. Filter sits ~2ft below and left of tank with 2.5ft of outflow tubing and 4ft of inflow tubing. I was wondering about what size i need to order? 5/8 is roughly 16mm which seems to be the answer but I just wanted a little experienced advice. Tank only...
  4. For Sale/Trade
    I have a Mr. Aqua 60P and these are too short. They were perfect in my old 13g bowfront and would probably work for a 12 long or other shallower tank. I just cleaned them out decently but there's still a little algae anywhere my flexible brush wouldn't go. No cracks or anything, they work as...

  7. Planted Nano Tanks
    Hey all, So I'm thinking about starting up a planted nano Betta Tank, and I've got some questions. First off, there will be pressurized CO2, with a glass diffuser in the tank. The tank is a 12x12x12 cube, 7.5 gal. Here it is...

    Interested in buying a working Eheim 2213 cannister filter and lily pipes. Message me with pictures and a price if you are selling. Trying to set up my first tank on a budget.
  9. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Alright so my big question is what lily pipes should I go with for my Eheim 2211 Canister Filter? I have been doing some research online and honestly the ADA and Do!Aqua pipes are too expensive. I found this site where I can buy both the inlet and the outflow pipes for as much as one lily pipe...

    I have a Mr. Aqua 13g bowfront that I just recently set up (pics not uploaded yet, it's awesome though :icon_mrgr) with a ZooMed 511 canister filter and a FleaBay glass lily pipe outflow. Tank was set up with an established filter and plenty of plants from an established system, and the water...

  12. Equipment
    Im looking to get Lily Pipes for my aquarium but my glass tank is made a little different compared to other glass tanks... Both sides have a piece of glass (im guessing for support) on the top of the tank... both 3" wide (from edge or rim to end of acrylic support) And a 12" x 12.5" piece right...

    Stainless Steel Lily Pipes for your canister filter. These pipes are made out of 304 grade Stainless Steel and won't rust in fresh water aquariums. Unlike glass and acrylic lily pipes, they won't break if dropped or have visible "brown sludge" build up inside them.. The intake pipes...
  15. Swap n Shop Archived Posts
    These 13mm lily pipes were never used. I am willing to trade for 1. some nice driftwood pieces for a 20 gallon (malaysian preferred) or 2. a nice assortment of moss and ferns. 3. perhaps shrimp (will have to wait until my aquarium is set up before trading). I can also end up selling them...

    I've been playing around with different setups to get the best flow around the tank. The diagram below shows what I settled for.. are there any issues with this kind of setup? It does spin everything around.. but would it create dead space in the middle? The plants in the middle do sway ever so...
  17. Equipment
    before I shell out over $200 to buy these lily pipes, I'm curious to know how often I have to clean them out? I love the way they look, but part of me is thinking that they will not stay "clean" for very long. If you own a set of lily pipe, can you give me an idea how often you have to clean...
  18. Equipment
    I have bought a Fluval 305 almost a year ago because I was planning on getting a 55 Gal tank. I decided I'd rather have a rimless tank and finally settled on a 17 gal. from GLA. I've have a 13mm set of glass inlet-outflow pipes (17mm is just too big for this tank). So now I have a problem. My...
