    Not sure I'd use a 10w... too much in one spot.

    If the screen width is 10.5 inches, you need about 1500 lts an hour.
    if the screen width is 13 inches, you need about 2000 lts an hour.

    And these are actual ( measured ) flow volumes, not what the pump says it can deliver ( usually way off ).
