no not one that blows air, you want a circ pump like : http://www.harborfreight.com/158-gph-miniature-submersible-fountain-pump-68396.html
Thats the one I use in my tanks and buckets to keep things moving, just blows water, not air so you have no foaming.

The smallest water feature pump they make would work fine.

Awesome thread everyone. I'm going to start me a small degreasing tank here soon. Just need to gather materials. I think I'm just going to use an old cooler. Would you guys mind telling me what thermostat and heating element I'll need?
Thanks in adance.

I have 10 bucket heaters going and my power bill is around $800 a month, they work great with a timer, just start with it coming on a few times a day and adjust it til you get the temp you want, if you have anything with antlers don't shut the lid as it will allow mold to grow on them

It runs about $300 in the summer months, I usually have 2-3 tanks going then, when hunting season starts full swing and I have them all going it goes up to $750-$950 a month, that's for my whole house, the bucket heaters use a lot of it though

Use a 110v lower water water heater element and the matching single thermostat.  I had several chest freezer tanks set up like this for a long time.  Yes, you will use the electricity, that is the down side.  The only thing you can do to offset this cost is to look into a solar water heater.  In the winter, this will give you 6 to 7 hours of not having to use the element to heat.  Solar water heaters are not complex builds and there is a slew of info online about low cost builds.  I am looking to build one into my new tank build.  If you are wanting to be cost efficient, there are many solar options that will help offset operating costs.
