I thought about that with a hob overflow if I get a tall sump it would fill up and the water level in my DT would be below it

I'm kinda late to the thread, but if you have fears of losing siphon I would recommend an overflow with an aqua lifter. I run a CPR hob overflow with an aqua lifter and only had one issue when the pump got clogged with algae. This didn't cause am issue due to having enough room for the extra water in the display tank. Cut it real close though.
