External Small Water pump


I am building terrarium for a lizard and i have a very small water feature that will have a waterfall coming down off the back of the terrarium to collect in a pool (approx 2'x10"x 2-3"deep) and I am having a heck of a time finding a small external pump with an inlet and outlet to make my DIY waterfall.

Any idea? I do not want to have a submersible pump

You could put a submersible filter in some kind of watertight container so it has an inflow and and outflow tube.

It's the exact same as a canister filter, really, all that most external pumps are are slightly modified internal pumps in an enclosure.

This is an example of what I mean, of course you'd use a smaller container and pump. and not Gorilla glue!
