If you want glass lily pipes, i'm a fan of the generic ebay ones. Be warned, they are delicate. Warm up your tubing in some very hot water before trying to slide the tubing over the glass... thats about it. If you want something far more durable and just as nice looking,(IMO) check out Fishman9809's thread, he makes custom acrylic lily pipes that are pretty awesome.
As for the magnum filter, I've heard good things about them from most people, and $50 is a bargain. took a quick peek at Marineland's site, and per the manual i found there, your filter uses 3/4" tubing, or 20mm.
I'd have to agree with Indignation with the eBay knock-off lily pipes. I received mine a couple days back and found that they were about 1 to 1.5mm thick. If I tried brute forcing the tube on/off, the glass would definitely break resulting in probably a red mess =/.
