Im just having a dilemma what to size of tank to get for my sump and fuge because "bigger is better" if I get a the 30 gal long its 36"x 12"x16" and that means i have a small amount of space left for my ro water, food, test kit etc..maybe less than 7". But have a nice spacious sump and not cramped everything. If i have the 20 gal its 30"x12"x12 and perfect in a way that i have extra amount of space for my ro water and etc.. But the area of the fuge and skimmer will be tight. Considering my nwb150 skimmer is 12" in length and return pump is 4".

I'd go with the 20 long. That is what I have on my 55 tank.

Do you have the skimmer in there and the fuge in the middle section?

No, I built a sump out of a 20 long. Currently housing a nwb150 reef octopus. I'd suggest only making the return section as large as the return pump, itll give you more room for a fuge and your skimmer.

Page 22 the built sump shows up.
