4 MDQ-SC WATER PUMP LITTLE GIANT

would this pump be a good return for a 90 gal tank? i'm looking at a used wet/dry acrylic with this pump for $250 CND. i think it is a good deal, the pump itself lists for $170 US. here are the specs:

4 MDQ-SC WATER PUMP LITTLE GIANT
MAGNETIC-DRIVE PUMPS FOR AQUARIUM USE. THEY ARE QUIET RUNNING WITH A VERY LOW HEAT EXCHANGE. OPERATE IN-LINE ONLY. MDQX-SC PUMPS ARE FOR CIRCULATION ONLY. 810 GPH AT 3', 23' MAX., 1" FT IN, 1/2" MT OUT.


any advice appreciated.

I have 2 of the 4MDQX-SC on my 225 and have been happy with them. THey are pretty quiet and don't get too hot. My pump for my protein skimmer is a 3mdqx-sc and it does run hotter but is thermally protected so I was told not to worry about it as it will shut down if it gets too hot.
