I would go with as large a sump as you can fit under the tank. More water volume is much better. A 10g tank will have a hard time keeping up with the flow and you will be dealing with evaporation issues and keeping your pumps from burning up. A 20g tall tank will work but if you can go larger I would.

Anytime. If you click on the link in my signature about my system you can see how I have my sumps setup. Sometimes a picture works better then words.
