Debating on building a bigger sump for my 90 FOWLR before i get it running. What would be a good size? And can anyone offer good advice? Thanks in advance.

Depends on a lot. Like what you want in it. A 30g tank would be great for a sump. I have a 110g tank and I'm in the process of getting a 30g tank for my sump.

Do you have a thread started or plan to start a thread? I will follow to get an idea. My filtration system is rather on the older side but works. So a slow over time upgrade would be nice. Especially with my budget.

Depends on your space. I believe you can never have to big a sump. The bigger the better IMO adds more water volume to your system.
