    My mom and dad in Tennessee stumbled upon a small pump was wondering if I would be able to use it for my tank somehow. I have no clue either so I figured I would come to you guys and ask.

    I have a 56 High tank now and I don't have a sump just YET but plan to in the future. The pump in question is a:

    Little Giant Pump Company
    Model: PSM-002

    I believe it was originally made for a fountain from the sites I have been looking at. For more specs you can check out the website at amazon.

    Any help/opinions are greatly appreicated, thanks!

    you could use it if it can overcome the head pressure but 120 gph is very low you would want 300 to 600gph but to get you up and going its better than nothing plus it could be useful in future waters changes or a topoff pump
