question about 72g bow front

What size sump tank would be good for a 72g? I have a 30g tank now with a 10g eshops sump, i dont think that will be big enough. Any advice/suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks
Sean

Turn the 30G in to the sump if you get the 72G BF. As per sumps, the larger the better.
