Water pump help

Hello, I have a 90 gallon saltwater tank. I'm trying to find a pump that I can hook 2 hoses to. One to suck the junk out of the tank and the other to release the water into a garbage can. Having a single hose to seiffen the water out manually is no fun. Any thoughts?

any of the Danner-aquamag pumps will work.
Danner Supreme Aqua-Mag Water Pump
They have a threaded FPT inlet and a MPT outlet and can safely be run externally, so that would be my first choice.

Thanks. So the pump motor/filter won't be impacted by any junk in the tank? Also, will it suck up my crushed coral base? And the final, if I change to a sand base, will it suck up all that too? Sorry for all the questions. Just want to make sure I don't spend $40 and then think of everything after.

Uhmm, no, those and most pumps will jam if they suck up debris.
I assumed you simply meant for changing water, not for sucking out sand and stuff.
If you need one that can handle debris and gravel there is this one, a Sicce Dirty Water pump that will allow junk to pass through;

You got it right. I don't want it to suck up my coral or sand if I go that route, so this helped tremendously. Thanks.
