    Well i still have my tank cycling :( but in this time i have noticed that my water seems to evaporate pretty quick. So now i'm looking into a diy auto top off. I have a big vaction coming up in about a month and am worried that too much water will evaporate while i'm gone. So long story short i'm trying to figure out what size pump i need to get the water from my bucket up 62" of hose and to the tank. Everythink i have just laying around won't push the water up that high. I'm sure i'm not the first person with this issue so please help me out.

    most pumps with around 400 GPH flow should be able to lift the water that high
