Aim for 1.5x LR
to total aquarium size in gallons.
I would run filterless with the exception of a good HOB
skimmer. Coral life super skimmer 65 is what I recently got for my 37 gal
and I am impressed to say the least. Titanium heaters are great, good choice, you may look into one with an external heat adjustment.
I do not run a sump and have done perfectly fine with the exception of some nitrate problems I have been having that are resolved finally.
With that said, I would opt for a sump if you can afford it. The benefits of a fuge/sump are worth the extra money IMO
. I definatly have a sump/fuge setup on my xmas list.
