Yes, just make sure to clean it well. They don't necessarily have to fit inside, they can just hide behind it. Try to get a decent size.

Were the pipes schedule 40? My guess is if they weren't and you got the cheap stuff then they are less dense than schedule 40 and there is a chance they may float. Just a thought, I haven't tested out my theory.

I use 4 inch fittings it's big enough for most fish to hide in
