That is a good question for Melev. Marc is going to discuss sumps in the January issue for [rk]. My own thoughts are to use it as a big sump. Water volume is always a blessing in a marine tank. Take it this way. If a snail kicks the bucket in a 20 gallon tank, the amount of ammonia is going to be pretty high. In a 120,like you are moving to, it will only be a sixth of that amount. Add a big sump, like your 65, and it becomes a tenth as high. That is why one uses a sump. They help in diluting pollutants.
