Canister filter inlet/out hose diameter

I am going to make a modification to my stand I just finished building and need to know what the diameter of the inlet and outlet lines are on most canister filters?
I will get a HOB filter for a while? Prob try the AC110 till I am sure what canister to get. Was thinking of one by either Eheim or Rena. Poss considering Fluval as well. Truthfully, I have no idea which canister filter to even begin to consider.
Thanks for the help!
Scott

My Eheim 2234 (rated for 60 gals) uses 1/2 inch line tubing.

I am totally sold on Eheim over Fluval. My fluval does a great job on water clarity, but its fussy and needs to be cleaned more often compared to my 2 Eheims, which deliver equally great results.

I don't own a Rena, so can't comment.

My fluval has a 5/8 line in and out. And it's better than muds.. lol Just kidding

I won't start an Eheim vs Fluval vs Marineland vs Rena war, but Fluval is the best lol (jk, actually, maybe I'm not).

Are you needing to drill a hole for the hose? If so, I'd just go with 1" to allow you to use about any canister.
