Not sure what size the outlet is on the mag 9 but I just used some PVC fittings to allow for a barb end on the pump. I then attached my clear tubing to the barb fitting.

Or did you mean the accordian style tubing?

I would think you could get something like this at a hardware store. Home Depot, Lowes, etc...

I would also check out your local hardware store. The Mag 9 uses a 3/4" MPT outlet. I dont think you will be able to go from 3/4" to 1 1/2" in just one step.
