The biggest Sump you can fit under your tank, is the one I would go with. The more Water you have the better. So go with the biggest sump you can fit.

As for a top, some people use the Pond Nets, this allows for all the benefits of an open top tank, but it will keep your fish from jumping out. I am using a Egg Crate florescent lighting cover for my tank. Allows for an open top benefit, but hinders fish from jumping out.
