    Fuse size will be determined by what pump you have. Either a 2.5 or 5 amp. What model pump do you have? If it is a 12v it will be 5 amp.

    Thats cool, I know I need a 5amp fuse with my 800gph rule but what type of fuse, automotive, household, special marine spec which will probably cost a million times the amount of the auto type but is the same thing lol

    i used a glass type which blew straight away and then it got stuck trying to remove it lol

    I would goto a auto parts store if u have such and match up something that fits. Make sure its a 12v 5amp. I would use the normal glass type. Maybe u had too small of a voltage or amp rating.
