Shenanagins 210 Gallon Build

Well I finally got a hold of a great sized tank for my RES. The tank I found comes with two overflow towers and it's all drilled and ready to go. I initially didn't plan on having a sump but I can't ignore the fact that the hard part is already done for me. Anyway ill post pictures as soon as I have the tank and ill have plenty of questions about getting the sump together so appreciate any help here. To start, what would be a good size sump for a 210? Is my 55 suitable?

Clear your inbox, you should just become a supporter so you don't make me retype my messages all the type. As for the sump you know I don't know much but I'd got for at least a 75 if possible and lots and lots of output power especially with that nasty turtle lol. But if you already have a 55 I would say you'd be fine
