Hi guys just wanted to get some feed back on what the consensus is on tank/sump size ratio is ?

For a 100 gallon tank would 40 gallon be alright ?

Filtration will include

Roller mat
Skimmer
Refugium
Possibly a carbon reactor or some other type of chemical Filtration.

Thanks for any response.

To tell you the truth anything is good but as big as you can fit in your allocated space is best. a 40g would be great. you also can run reactors outside the sump and i like doing that so when i need to change media it is less work.
 

What do you look for when making sure your skimmer is working correctly?
