    Default water pumps from ebay?

    0 Not allowed!
    i know i brought the notion of DIY canister filters a while back, but that was for my larger tanks. ive been bringing back this notion for my small 10g tanks (one with RCS and 1 with a betta) the betta might even be down graded to just the 5.5g with plants since he will be the ONLY fish in there.
    any ways, the notion crossed my mind and now im looking to see if any one has any experience buying water pumps off ebay. i want an inline one and was looking at 2 different ones. 1 is about 10$ shipps from USA and pumps about a max of 60gph (running max, i will run it at min most likely) and the other is a hongkong special with almost no info about it, but only 4$.
    what are some things i should be worried about with either of the 2 pumps?

    looks like both can accommodate airline tubing with out a problem. since ill have plenty of that laying around (just got 200' of it for 3$ from a friend XD). also bought 1/2" tubing by mistake.... so i think ill hace tubing covered...

    im not looking to do anything too special with them. low bioloads might just lead me to using spare sponges from AC filters.
    I wonder if i plant one of my tiger barbs would the demon seed grow to a full tree?
    gotta love them bunnies!

    I have limited success with the cheap chinese brands. They work well at first but don't seem to last very long.
