filtration ?

Hi I bought a 90g tank and sump, I want to get a eel probably a snow flake I haven't decided yet but I have done research on them and read that they create a lot of waist will my sump be sufficient or should I invest in a canister filter? Any info would be appreciated

Do you have any LR. Plenty of LR and a skimmer is All you need. Tell us what you have already. My snowflake`s not alive any more but he was fun while I had him. You`ll need plenty of LR for him to live in.
