Good Sump for 120 and 125?

Basically, that... What would be a good sump size for a 120G or a 125G Reef tank? I would like it to be large enough to fit a good skimmer, heaters, return pump, a couple GFO reactors, and have a semi-decent refugium. Any help would be awesome! Thanks

My lfs installs the buffers/dividers on tanks. I want this to be my dream tank, so definitely drilled. I do not yet know if it will be drilled on the back or bottom.

For a 120 I would do a 40 gallon breeder. For a 125 I would do a 40 long. The downside with the 125 is you are only going to fit a 12 inch wide sump in the stand but you'll have more length to the sump.

I better investigate my skimmers. I definitely want a good one to fit.
