Does anyone know where I can find a small submersible pump? I need it to push ~5-15gph.
umm look up the Hagan Mini elite, its technically a filter, but is VERY small and can easily function as a pump if that is all you want it to do. IDK its GPH off the top of my head.
oh good suggestion, thats the lowest GPH ive seen so far, thanks. Do you think 58gph will be too much for a betta?
well it does have a flow control, but be VERY careful with it when cleaning. Like I said its very small filter, and lets just say my flow control literally went down the drain :-(. Even cranked down all the way it might be a bit much depending on the betta, but if you aim the output at a rock or something to disperse the current it then it will probably work fine. I used one in a 2.5 gallon tank and got it too work great for a betta. I found its best to put it a inch or so off the bottom that way its easier to block and disperse the output with some hardscape object.
BTW I got mine from Petco for around $10 if I remember correctly.
Well i want one for my DIY project as the pump to keep the waterfall running, so i might skip the filter media and use it just as a pump for water, less maintenance that way. I think i may just put an acrylic wall in front of it to divert the flow and mellow it out or sumthing. Thanks for the tip!
