Recommended size for a begineer into marine?

  • Since there are a ton of options and knowledge online and out there, what size of a sump would you recommend it for someone just getting into the game, and why would you recommend that size?

    For me, I'd personally recommend a sump size of 55 gallons, since it not only has a lot of room in order to grow your filter media size - but also has a lot of water volume room to make sure that it's that much harder to make a mistake water parameter-wise at once.

  • I think anything between 40-75 gallons would be ideal sump size for a beginner. It would be neither too big nor too small and it is not possible to keep changing the size quite often.
