Submersible

Can anyone tell me if this powerhead is fully submersible. It has a thing that makes it look like it's supposed to hang or something. Click image for larger version

Could it be used to run a return on a sump tank?

Only if the sump and overflow were waaaay tiny, that pump only moves at most 295gph...

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Hmm. How many gallons per hour would I need for a 120 gallon tank, 50 gallon sump?

The more the better. I would shoot for 600 gallons per hour or greater.

Submersible

Not unless it's rated for saltwater. You want the pump built right or risk electrocution. Usually they are sealed magnetic drive pumps that you want.

for a 120 tank, you are looking at $150 and up for a return pump, it will depend on where and how far it is plumbed along with head pressure
