Depends on what you are keeping. Only use the poppy glass if you want little to no flow.
so the lily pipe will give a lot more flow? also have you used or know someone using a pumpkin inlet? i am curious how well they work for plants to be around them vs a regular pipe inlet that the plant can stick to causing flow blockage

There are, I believe, 3 different glasses.

Lily Pipes
Violet Pipes
Poppy Pipes

Lily - strong outlet
Violet - Stronger as it produces a current like out stream (High water flow if you like that type of outlet, violet over lily any day!)
Poppy - Moderate to low current (For fishes that require or like LOW water current like bettas and killifishes)
