You might try the Zoo Med 316 sold as a reptile filter at DrsFosterSmith 
among other places. I found the info on the Zoo Med 105 micro pump that is 
part of that filter and the pump itself is max 55 gph, max head 17.7", and 
can run dry for 30 days with no problem and is very, very tiny 1.7"x1.7" 
x12." http://www.aquaticsbykr.com/images/pumps/104.html for data and 
for pricing. $19 as filter, less with just the pump 
for $11
