Product Description

This set includes both the inlet and outlet pipes and is suitable for 1/2" (13mm) tubing.
NEW FEATURE: The 13mm iflo outlet now comes with 2 suction cup holders.
Glassware is purpose designed and creates a minimalist look withi the Aquascape. Manufacturered using 3mm tempered Opti Clear Glass these pipes are strong and resist accidental breakage unlike other cheap alternatives.

Outlet - Lily Pipe

The Lily pipe is a very unique pieces of equipment that creates a soft flowing motion as found in a river or stream environment.
The bell mount outlet to your filter can be positioned just below (to decrease gas exchange) or slightly above the waters surface (to improve aeration). Each position influences the rate of surface turbulance. If the Aquarium is supplied with CO2 injection you can increase its efficiency by minimising surface water disturbance and as such the bell mount outlet should be positioned under the surface. At the same time it is important to remove any surface film which prevents light penetration and looks unsightly. The bell mouth design feature also assists here by creating a whirlpool effect which effectively eliminates surface films. The ANS outlet is secured via 2x suction cups and is 20cm long.
Inlet
The ANS Inlet pipe carries water from the Aquarium to the canister filter and is suitable for 13mm tube diameter for 1/2" tubing. The width between the arch is approximately 4.3 cm and has a total length of 23cm. It is designed for aquariums 20 gallons and larger. The ANS inlet is secured by 1x suction cup in the 13mm version and 2x suction cups in the 17mm. The vents on the inlet face the tank glass wall when installed on this model. This has no effect on the functionality of the unit.

iFlo creates a vortex on the surface of the water acting to extract surface film.

Spot the difference between a qualtiy filteration pipe set and a cheap alternative.

At Aquascape Design we believe firmly in providing our customers with quality products. Beware of cheap alternatives to the well know CAL, ADA and ANS filter glassware sets. Lets run through some of the differences. Lets compare the ANS iFLO and little known brand Power Men Aquatics (PMA).
  • Glass thickness - PMA made from thinner glass which is easily broken. ANS iFlo is 3-4mm thick tempered glass.
  • Glass Colour - ANS is made from OptiClear glass for superior clarity. PMA is not.
  • Suction cups - ANS uses 2x suction cups on its 17mm version to help stabolize the lily pipe outlet.
  • Surface Extraction - The angle of the PMA bell mouth faces slightly downward. Combine this with less velocity (due to thinner glass) and surface extraction is not acheived.
  • Inlet vents - Size of the inlet slits on PMA are smaller than required thus decreasing inlet flow and general workmanship is poor.
