Welcome to AA

Kind of pointless for that small, why do you want it overhead and not below?

The bigger the better, I assume you are going to pump the water to it and have it gravity feed back into the main tank.

I'm not sure I would sugget putting a tank in your closet to begin with. Things can happen and that could be a mess! Not to mention that you are going to have salt creep and that can get on your clothes too.

A refugium would be a better idea IMO. You could still do a sump below but would need HOB overflows since your tank isn't drilled.

Check out Darren Baucum's Refugium Page for some ideas.
