Sump for 130 gallon.

Hi!
So I just bought a 130 gallon custom made corner tank. It came with an amiracle sump, but it is pretty small.(The previous owner operated with it) I was wondering what is a normal sized sump for this size aquarium? Iam planning on putting the sump in the basement.

the bigger the better. if you're going to put it in the basement, i wouldnt go smaller than a 55, maybe a 75 is the funds are in order? the more water volume, the better
