in a closed system like that, the 501 wouldn't have to "lift" any water, only over come the friction of pushing it through the tubes. There is a siphon occurring in closed systems that negates the required lift.
Using airline tubes could be a problem though, they might be too small.

I like the tank though, where did you get it?
