Has anyone ever used the filter pipes from Green Leave Aquriums? They look great and are a lot cheaper than ADA. Planning on getting a set for my Ehiem 2217. Will let you all know how they are.

Be sure to get the corresponding sizes to match you're filters in/out hose's.
Orlando/GLA will answer you're questions regarding sizes.

These pipes are not as attractive as ADA pipes, but still they are glass
and functional.
