Trust me you will be glad you went with a sump
PS 55g for me or anything larger will never be an overkilled! You never if you are gonna get a bigger tank in the future & you are set. If you have the room...go for it cause more water vol is a plus!
Cool thanks. Yeah I'm prob not gonna go bigger than my 135 lol. I have to build the stand and custom basking platform for my RES, can't wait. Then sump time!
