What type of lighting are you gonna do? Might dictate where you place your pump. I don't have an issue with heat in my tank however it's b/c i use LED's. if I wasn't I'd probably have my return pump sitting outside my fuge so not as to overheat the tank

I'm going to be using a T5 6 tube ovt light unit. Just hope I can afford to get it this weekend.
I would like LEDS but can't afford them at the moment.

If a pump is drawing that much heat, something is wrong with it. I myself use LED lights so my pump is in my sump. But I never heard of a pump giving off such heat

That's a good point, it would have to run very hot to make such a difference to the temp of the main tank.

Either way, take it apart and clean it. You'll be able to see if there is damage to it or if something is preventing it from working properly.

Quick question about tank connectors. Does the rubber washer go on the inside of the tank or the outside of the tank?

Yes mate for the bulk head. Is it worth putting silicone round it too as an extra precaution?
