sump pump recomendations PLEASE
 
i have a 46gallon bowfront and im turning a regular empty 45 gallon tank into my sump. i dont know the demetions off the top of my head besides it being 3 feet long so i have room to work with so pump size isnt a problem.. it will probly have to pump about 5 or so feet up to the tank becasuse the sump will be next to it ( for now until i can build a stand for it to go under it ) anyways can someone give me an idea of a brand of pump thats will work good for my needs? or maybe give a link to where i can get a good one online, i would really appreciate it thanks.

Are you using an external overflow?
I am building a sump with the same size display, a 46 gal bow. I am using a 15 gal long for a sump, and my LFS guy is plumbing a Mag Drive 7 pump for me. I have to pump about 4 ft from the sump to the top of the display, so maybe the Mag Drive 9.5 would be better for your app.
