"It worked great."

Using right now for my indoor pond for my koi until the one outside is finished. 5' in max setting but slowed down any higher than that. Can min the flow for cat fountain or med. I keep the water stored in a 5 gal bucket and this pump is perfect for the size. There was still to much water flow. May 2020; Just received this and so far am really happy. It is a definite asset to the outdoor space.

"Plenty powerful."

The solution was adding the little water pump. No more trying to lift a 5ga bucket full of water! I'm using this for mixing salt and pumping water back into my tank through the sump. THEN THERE WAS A 5 GALLON PAIL OF SUBTRATE. Can min the flow for cat fountain or med. And moves a lot of water,if needed! The water is crystal clear and the bottom completely clean by morning!

At least 50% less than big box store's price. At least 50% less than big box store's price. So, I converted a used aquarium into an orchidarium.

"Perfect fit."

By the time were ready to pump the water back in, salt is completely mixed. I wound up buying a less exspensive, simpler one. This first one was a little taller and worked perfectly. Might be a good idea for them to figure out how to ship the tubing more reliably. Quiet while running and great suction. Quiet and flows well for a pump that is only a couple inches in size. The design feels solid and the suction cups hold well.

"I've got a 60ga tank."

Best emergency replacent I've bought for my 75gallon reef tank! Quiet and flows well for a pump that is only a couple inches in size. By the time were ready to pump the water back in, salt is completely mixed. I really like this pump, although I would have liked a little more flow. Keep that in mind when running through a similar setup. The smaller waterfalls are run by another one of these on a split line. Overall I was surprised how light it is, maybe 2-3 lbs.

"The not waterproof plug."

It's very quick, and does an excellent job. The physical size is great, and the pump itself is very quiet. The effluent connector exits on the top and is pointed up. Put it back in the aquarium and has been quiet ever since. It does NOT come with an electric switch. The only reason I couldn't give the pump 5 stars is that it does generate some heat. So, I converted a used aquarium into an orchidarium.

Packaged well and it appears to be a well designed pump. My current standard 100gph pump wasn't cutting it. The solution was adding the little water pump. Ended up removing pump from aquarium after 3 days of relentless noise. I ordered this pump for some minor jobs unrelated to the basement. Perfect for a cat fountain or small fountain up to 1. Plugged it in and gave it a couple of seconds.
