@Redchigh, at 30 ounces, the jar is still only around 1/4th of a gallon, for a 10g tank at, 50gph (turning water over 5 times in an hour), the amount of time the water has exposed to media will be really short, will this achieve the filtration you need?

Since I only need it for water polishing and water movement, yes.
It's volume is nearly the same as the average 10G HOB or internal filter.

I found my jar, and it's about 40-50 ounces. Just waiting to be able to afford the pump.
