Uplift tube

Whelp, I'm making my own sponge filters but I'm having trouble finding something for the uplift tube. I don't want to use PVC because it's much too big. They are going to be pretty small (for 3.3g tanks). Is there a certain amount of space need to leave for bubbles to exit, or will anything work?

If you go to a craft store, they sell these tubes...plastic ones that are smaller but fit an air stone in. I don't know what part of the store but, I saw the advert of someone making their own and, they got a pack of 4 for very cheap. They are also easy to cut. If you go to the "breeding" section, there are links on one of the stickies that have videos on where you make you own. They had several different ones but, the ones with the pipes from the pet store, was one of those in the videos and told you what they were.

How big or small does the pipe need to be.??

3/4' (20mm) PVC electrical conduit.. I think that you can also get 5/8' (16mm) as well..

Black PVC pipe that comes with Garden watering systems..

What size do you need??
