Exo Terra® Repti Flo 200 Circulation Pump
I use this to create a subtle current and circulation in my painted turtles tank because it's well planted, and it does a good job, but not what I was looking for. It only created a gentle waves about 5'' away from the output, when I was looking for about 2'+. I don't think it can handle a lot of water, but it'd be great for a smaller tank.

Well, it *does* work....
Bought this for a Tree Frog terrarium waterfall I'm building....On the recommendations of a friend. Well, it DID work.... just not up to my expectation. I was given the impression by the individual that this model has no problems handling 2-2.5' of head pressure but in actuality, it was more like 14" using 3/8" tubing. Raise the tubing even a hair over that and it stalls. Needless to say, this wouldn't work for my needs so I returned it today.
NOW.... Don't get me wrong, it's a great little pump, it's well made, the cord is heavy duty and the suction cups anchor it in place quite well. I really wish it would have worked for me. If you're going to build a *SMALL* water-feature, say, less than 12 - 13" tall, then this is the pump for you. It's probably best suited to handle a water-feature in a 12"x12"x18"... like a Zoo Med or an Exo Terra. And Remember, if at all possible, always use either RO or Distilled water.... your pumps and pets will thank you.
