Hello: I don’t know of a fitting, but simply flaring out one end of the tube is how I’d do this. There must be a lip in the tank fitting for that flare to catch, but flaring out soft copper is done with a flaring tool if it goes big enough, or it can be done with a ball pein hammer, or even small pliers. If it’s hard copper it’s best to anneal it first to soften it up a bit before working it. 😉

Yours, Larry
