lol actually and sadly that would work. However you'd have find out how much power the pump needs, then how much power the turbine can generate off a 2" or 3" Pvc pipe...
With all that said, you'd also have to compare life of turbine and pump vrs cost of just using electricity over that given time frame. To see which is cheaper. Pending the output of the turbine, which would have to be a mini ... you might be able to setup a battery system (grid) to hold the power. This could also in turn possibly power the rest of the aquarium.
On another note if you had solar panels and the grid in place, you could be green doing that instead of the turbine.
