    i will shortly these 2 pumps are for just that purpose but it involves having the pump situated in the overflow with a hole through the glass allowing the outlet of the pump to return the water.

    you need a seperate overflow from the one that feeds toyr sump to do this.. just waiting on a 65mm glass drill bit to get things going..

    Here is an installation in a bigger tank. They do tend to "shrink" in size.

    Les, if possible- if you take them out at some stage. Would you be able to hold them in your hand and take a pic- just for comparison

    oh i forgot to mention the propellor is 3 bladed and a nice thing about the controller is that if you pull the plug out and plug it in again it doesnt loose the setting it was on.. just simple stuff that makes it lekker.
