you should go bigger then the 20g because if the power goes out on that 120g the amount of water that will need to drain into the sump will be much more then the 20g can handle...you will have a huge issue on your hands if that happens.

use a 55g or at least a 30g Long.

I have a plumbing setup that if the power goes out it will drain to my floor drain. And with the style of overflow plumbing I have less than 3 gal will be lost.

Theres only 3 inches of plumbing above water. If the pump quits water will only drain below the pick-up tube
