The Zoomed 501, as from what I have heard from many users, is that it is not strong enough to pump 'up' from under the tank, and does best sitting next to/behind the tank at the same level so the motor doesnt burn out and the impeller stops. I would think of instead spending the money over and over again on getting Zoo501's, is to make the investment into a Eheim or Xp1 and just have it sit under your desk. You can still go to Lowes or whatever and get clear tubing for it too.
