those vents suck in water and the little nob controls the flow then the little tube at the top is the output of water

It does look like a powerhead to me. To be safe, I'd try it in the pail. Have you test run(lol..not the car. ) it already?:)

If that is powerful, not in a small tank. Your fish would probably end up being swept around by the currents it makes. Best not to use it as it may be not be designed for a powerhead.:)
