do I have to just glue it on? Or could I use nipples and couplers? Thanks in advance.
You could use "nipples and couplers", or barbed connectors, and that would likely be best. But you can also just "glue" it in, with no likely problems. Use goop and you can put a tube directly into the AT2K tank (where it origionally was) and back onto the pump. I think there is a barbed kinda deal on the pump, you can just stick the tube over, maybe a bit of goop.
I think the size you actually want is 1/4" Vinyl tubing. It's sold at your local Lowes by the foot, at $.14/ft.
Edit: Instead of the couplers louiec3 linked below, because I'm in college and cheap, I just buy the next size of tube up, with a 1/4" ID, and goop the two tubes into the one larger one as a coupler.

When ever I see solvent weld, its always specific to a certain type of plastic. Yet a lot of people mention using a solvent weld to attach al sorts of things to each other. Does one have to figure out the types of plastic your bonding and then fit the solvent to the job? Is there some sort of magical one-solvent-works-on-all-sorts-of-plastic product?

If you want to be precise about it, there are various formulations of IPS Weld-on for specific plastic: polyester, polycarbonate, etc. but I've had good enough success solvent-welding polyester to PVC and polycarbonate to PVC with standard PVC cement that I don't bother.
