"Possible" 29G Bowfront FOWLR

I originally planned on doing a ten gallon nano but I want more options for fish. So I hopped on craigslist and found 29G Bowfront for 20$. This seems like a good deal and I really want it for SW tank it all depends on if the guy still has stand my mom allows me to buy it lol So what fish could I put in here? Will it be necessary for me to have a sump and overflow for this? Thanks in advance for advice and help

I don't think that you will need a sump or overflow but I may be wrong so I'll wait for the salties to answer that. For fish you could do a goby, clownfish pair, wrassels, jawfish, and a lot more if you're not going to do a 10 gallon because that's a lot more space

If you have space and have the time to make one then you should definitely have a sump/refugium. Makes everything easier.

You don't have to have a sump, but it helps with hiding a lot of the equipment (Especially the Protein Skimmer). You could do Clowns (Like a pair of Ocellaris), Firefish, or a watchman goby (I know there are more, but those are my favorites)

How small? For a 29g you could have a 10 or 15g tank as the sump.

It doesn't have a big door and there's not enough room to fit a 10 gallon tank through it.....
