Well most current dc pumps are more than $50.

Expanding the search a little, some people may think the eheim 1048 is underpowered, but it does have decent power, is very quiet, and should be about $50.

For the price range you are looking at the Mag3 would probably be best with the D4/MCP650 also being a good choice altho more expensive. Personally the only two pumps I like are the MCP350/laing DDC and the MCP600/AQX 50Z but both of those are in the $80 range and would not make a good fit with your Maze4 which will like increased flow over high pressure.

Yup, for that price get a Mag 3. Make sure you use plastic barbs, and seal up the housing with silicone.

Well he can't go with a MCP350 becuase it's 3/8 and he said he has 1/2. But it is one of the best pumps and VERY quiet.
