Hmm

Starting up a new nano. Buying all top of the line. But I was wondering if 1 mp10would be good for A little 20. Or would it be better to get 2 mp10 for each side

You really can't go wrong with an mp10, even in such a small tank. i would think 2 would be overkill though.

Is this gonna be a drilled, overflow or hang on back filtration? Wondering about the other flow you'll have going on.

So just one mp10? Too much? And it's gonna be drilled to a 30 gallon sump so the water is super duper clean

If youre set on an mp10, which is the best there is out there then I say go for it. Is it a 20L or regular length? In a 20L I would have gone with a koralia 550 gph one so you can adjust the vortech down a bit to match your tank size.

While a larger sump is a good thing your filtration methods, stocking and feeding will determine the water cleanliness.

If you went with koralia's I would say 2 425's, same thing I run on my 20g rimless. One on either side.

You can also get all crazy with this setup and get a controller for it and set up a wavemaker that way.
