Yikes! Help with pump please!

I maintaining both my kids' various tanks while they are at college. My youngest has a 90 gallon with a 32 gallon frag tank plumbed into it. The main pump on the 90 gallon sump has obviously failed. Hubby has already had it apart several times in the last 2 weeks and thought we had it fixed. Came home from the weekend and while doing tank maintenance today, it is once again barely moving water out of one flow valve only. There is a small Korelia in that tank but obviously I need to do something here. Hubby is out of town, oldest and most knowledgeable son very sick (that's where hubby is) and youngest child isn't answering his phone, of course.

I need some advice on what to buy as a replacement pump. I can do the replacement but don't know what to buy.
