Matey

Can you measure the internal diameter of the rubber shroud that fits over the shut off valves on the filter unit.

Regular 16 or 17mm hosing fits the Fluval 205, so you can replace the rigid hosing with that.

17mm glassware is generally a lot more fragile than 12mm so be careful!

No probs mate - how this then :rolleyes:

Do you want a glass inlet / outlet or just the outlet. My outlet was off Ebay, I will check where I purchased it from and let you know.
