    Are you looking to just create water movement or actually filter the water? This pump you have won't filter the water.

    So what you have there is just a pump. All it does it push the water around and create flow.. It's not going to clean your water.. You need an actual filter.. You can look at internal canister filters - dophin isn't a bad brand, sebo is okay too. you also get hang on back filters that are also nice. I have a aquaclear on my 90l which is doing a good job. Everyone has their own preferences as to what filters are best, so I recommend you research what would work best for you and your tank..

    Also, 700l/h is quite high.. is it not blasting your fish around the tank?

    As @T. Guppy has said, that's a pump.
    You need a small internal filter.
    Ideally one that will turnover the volume of the water roughly 2.75 to 3 times an hour. So on your tank that would be a 150L per hour.

    Ok here’s a couple of filters that I run atm - google for prices. Should give you options

    - on the 44L a DoPhin F800 internal filter. Used to run it on the 65L

    (excuse the algae, it’s tucked away)

    Little Boyu internal filter on the 38L. You may need one size up.

    AquaClear Hang on the Back (HOB) filter- the priciest but can take a lot of biomedia. The one on the pic is an Aquaclear 70 but the Aquaclear 20 would work for your tank size
