If you are looking for a sump alot of people use a 20 long to hold skimmers, heater, and a reactor. If you are looking for a fuge I would suggest a 50 gallon tank.

For sump info take a look at Melev's Reef - Sumps & Fuge's

A reactor in aquarium terms is most likley a fluidized bed reactor, a place (cannister) containing some type of media that water is forced through. e.g. GAC. GFO, bio-pellets, etc.
