Glass filter piping

So... glass pipes. Besides looking pretty slick, is there additional benefit to having them?

Inflow - Outflow | CAL AQUA Filter Pipes | Green Leaf Aquariums

Also, there seem to be different shapes to the output "Lily" pipes. Just for looks or is there functionality there?

They look slick. Beyond that, there is not much benefit. People will argue about how some of the shapes do different things, but I have used many, many glass inflows/outflows, and many plastic inflows/outflows, and there is not a discernible difference in the health of the tanks on which I used them. They just look nice (until they get full of algae on the inside; if you get one, make sure you get a flexible brush to clean them periodically as well-- otherwise they don't look so slick anymore when they are puke brown ).

Kind of what I thought. Maybe one day when Im better with planted tanks and decide to try one of those rimless tanks, then It will be worth the price.

Thanks for the info.
