Sounds like you should make your 55g your main tank and the 29 your sump. You may even be able to incorporate a fuge in the 29 depending on your design.

I am basing my sump build on the following thread...

90G RR, 20L Fuge, 50+ lbs LR (more planned), 55G Sump, Mag 5, Rio 3100, ASM G3, Outer Orbit 2x150w HQI/T5, UV Sterilizer, Hydor 3

Fish - Tomato Clown, Black Chromis Planned - Green Mandarin, Corals, few more..

Like I said you wont have to worry as much if one of the pumps goes out the water level wont raise any in the sump. Your turnover rate of water will decrease however water will not fill up in your sump.
