I guess you can do it that way but you will be limited on how big your scrubber would be. I have seen nothing but positive results from mine but it is still new at only less than two weeks.

How big of a sump do I need for a 55 gallon tank? Any recommended retailers? It sounds like the way to go to clear up display space

A 20 long would be good for a 55 but the bigger the better

I didn't wanna mess with building my first sump so I bought a premade one. Bit more pricey but saved me alot of headaches. LOL Here's a link to one that would work with your tank, it has a refugium as well so that's a plus.

Eshopps Refugium R-100, 75-125g, 2nd Generation - AquaCave.com

After the first sump I bought I have made my new ones out of regular fish tanks. Alot cheaper and you can customize it.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
