Hey everyone,

I am currently using:

Amazon.com: TOM Aquarium Aqua Lifter Pump 3.5gph flow rate to 30 inches height: Pet Supplies

for one of my tanks for provide a small trickle of water off a piece of driftwood. I would like to use something similar in my new 62 gal tank but the head height on that little pump can't quite get the water up the 4 feet it needs to.

Does anyone have an suggestions of a pump with a small gph but a large head height. I just want a gentle trickle of water and don't really want to have to get a canister filter just to provide that trickle.

Thanks!

I have only gone up to 24", but it lost very little flow at that height.

The official specs say its max pumping height is 46".

I think the minimum I would feel safe with is 5 feet. The tank with water will be in the stand under the tank, it will then have to go up 1-2 feet to get to the tank and then 3 feet to get to the top of the tank.
