Building a siphon extension, tubing diameter?

Anyone have a large siphon that they can name the brand and tell me what the flexible tubing inside diameter is? I want to order a siphon and the attachments I need for my project and it would be really great if they all fit together when everything arrives!

I was looking at the Hagen, the Python, and the big Al's Python knock-off but any large, 18-24" gravel cleaning tube would work.
