Yes, but I really don't want to get into inline diffusers. Im content with my Rhinox1000

I don't run an air stone at night, it tends to splash water everywhere.

See what exact size the filter hoses are and buy correctly sized pipes.

There is an inner and outer diameter on your hoses.

I use an Eheim Ecco 2232 on my rimless 10g
How did you get a custom set? Where would you order one? Lol I personally would not trust clamps...especially when there's an electrical outlet behind the tank lol

How did I get a custom set ?? Magic !

Actually, I posted on my Club Forum and asked for what I could use instead of glass. There are acrylic sold on EBay. But then a member piped up and offered to make me a set. I posted a pic, he got swamped with orders. He cut everyone off by a certain date as he had something else to do called : School. We love his work, but he is not selling outside the club yet.

Try EBay or Google seach for plastic or acrylic Lily Pipes or try terms like canister filter outflow pipes.
