You'll be better off with two or more smaller pumps than one largepump. Having at least some water turnover is critical to the survivalof any aquarium, and if you have more than one pump when a pump failsyou will not need to desperately locate a replacement pump. An aquariumcan completely crash within eight hours if there is no water turnover because pumps are critical to aeration. An air pump will keep anaquarium aerated--you may want to have a battery operated air pump on hand to keep your aquarium operational during power outages.
