found a small pump.. need a use!
 
i found this really small fountain that just sits on a little bowl and managed to pry the tiny little pump out of there. im not really sure how much it will pump but if it helps it says 2 watt on one side. im sure theres some use for it inmy aquarium so if anyone has a use please tell me!

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.:squint: To be safe, I'd try it in the pail. Have you test run(lol..not the car.:mrgreen: ) it already?:)

yeah i test ran it and it isnt a power definatly not. because the part that sucks water in isnt like a tube, plus it was in a fountain. could i use it as a power head?

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