That little pump will barely put a dent in the current in a 30 gallon tank, if the pump was out of a decorative fountain. The ones that you can put on a coffee table. Those kinds of pumps were not designed to push water there were designed to let wter trickle out. If it wasnt that type of pump then disregard this. :D

Being it a trickle fontain you could suction cup it to the edge of the tank and let it trickle into the tank breaking the surface of the water a little. If it is strong enoguh, you could set up a little make shift waterfall that the water is pumped up maybe a couple inches and then flows down some plexiglass with rocks siliconed to it. Maybe a cone doing the same thing for a centerpiece waterfall. Lots of options just need to be creative.

i use a very small pump in my largest tank it has a perfectly ample pump at one end but i use the small one to help push the current round the tank and back to the pump and filter it helps the water quality i find as more of the water is being circulated....any help

well my room is very dirt and i lost it right now but if i find it i might put it in my 10 gallon vivarium and run a tube from the output to a waterfall type thingy? it might work if i rearrange and make the water a little deeper.
