Anyone know where I can get clear replacement for the green intake/outflow parts that come with the Eheim classic filter? I have a 2210 model and the two sizes are:

intake pipe 12/16 mm
outlet elbow suitable for EHEIM hose size 9/12 mm (4003943) and spray pipe with plug for external aquarium filter classic 150 (type 2211)

I don't know how to figure out what is compatible with this filter. Maybe something like this? https://www.amazon.com/FZONE-Aquati...locphy=9033359&hvtargid=pla-947753274474&th=1

Or this: https://buceplant.com/collections/filtration/products/aquario-premium-neo-flow

Not sure if it works because the two parts from the Eheim are slightly different sizes. I just think these are ugly (and the intake pipe is too big) for my shallow tank.

You could paint them black. I find black to be much less offensive. I painted the pipes to my 2 RENA Filstar canisters black because they were bright blue (who makes these product design decisions??). They were the first thing my eye would go to when looking at my tanks. Hated it. It's as if they want the pipes to be the prominant visual feature in the tank.

You just need a set of lily pipes. Look on Amazon for glass lily pipes that will fit your hose if you want clear. Or stainless steel if you want something with less maintenance (what I use).
Thanks - I ended up ordering some clear ones but wish I had gone for stainless steel. Maybe an upgrade down the road.
