planning 90g reef for the future

Switching from a 30g to a 90g will be relatively easy for me as most of the equipment i have on my tank is rated up to 150 gallons. All that i will need to get is additional LR and LS and lighting. I wanted to know if my 30g tank is enough of a sump for the 90 gallon. how do i make my sump partitioned and the water level constant. I will not be hard plumbing this in case of moving or any other circumstance. I was thinking about a ball valve that i found on drfostersmith.com for vinyl tubing. Also at what GPH pump should i get for the sump?


30 gallon SW tank;EHEIM ECCO 2235 Canister Filter w/Miracle-Working Chemi-Pure
TetraTec UV1 UV Sterilizer;Rio 50 Powerhead ;130w PC lighting;33 Lbs. of Tonga Branch LR;Nature's Ocean Live Sand (the bagged stuff)
Livestock:2-Ocellaris Clownfish;9-Scarlet Reef Hermit Crabs;1-Regal Tang;Zoanthids, Pineapple Brain coral, Sebae Anemone, Colt Coral, Galaxea
Tank Specs as of December 29, 2005:Ammonia:0;Nitrite: 0;Nitrate=0;Cu:0
PH: 8.3
SG: 1.028;Temp: 79-84 degrees F (Adjusts throughout the day)
