Going to be upgrading to a 180...but what size sump do I need? Have been recommend the trigger systems sump, which narrows down the brand! Lol. But what size is adequate?

Thanks in advance.

A common answer is, as big as possible. My preference is oversized so I dont have to worry about a siphon overflowing the sump.
