Which one would be better for a sump a 15 gallon or a 20 gallon tall. The 20 may be Squeezing it cux it's exactly 16" wide and the stand is too!

I would look for a 20 LONG. The biggest footprint you can fit in the stand. You aren't going to be able to do much with the height of a tall tank.

Ok that I can do! I'm gonna wait till petco has their $1 per gallon sale and get it then if I can't find one on CL by then. So a 20 long. There's no concern about the refuge fitting the the bottom with it to then? I don't wanna run our of space

EDIT: I found this sump on CL I'm not sure about it and wanted your opinion. Do you think this will fit in a 20 long sump?

The foot print for that skimmer is 15 inches by 9 which means that would have to fit in the sump. It should fit, might be a little tight though

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
