More than likely, yes.

Can you give gallonage for current tank and sump and then new tank?

Well, the more volume you add the better. I have a 30gal sump under a 125g display. It works, but I feel like I should have setup my 55 as the sump.

I think you'll be okay with the 20, but if you're starting a new tank I'd recommend a larger sump. You can probably find a 30 gal for $20 on Craigslist.
