Wpuld it in the long run be easier to run a sump. I have an empty ten and an empty 30g tank. If so which would be best to use? Would 30g be overkill for a 55g?

Never overkill with a sump.

I would use the 30g and yes, in the long run you would want a drilled tank with sump. Can't do it with fish and water in the tank so best to do it before you set up.

The extra water in the sump will also help keep the system stable. The more water volume you have the easier the system is to maintain. If something goes out of whack having that extra water makes a big difference. Swings in parameters are more noticeable with a smaller tank and the larger you go the less of an impact something will have on the water condition. Hope that made sense lol
