Also to know is, how do I know what size sump I need for my aquarium?

In a 180g or 210g, every inch of water column height = 7.0 gallons of water. This means that if 2 inches of water drain before a siphon breaks, you'd have 10.4 or 14.0 gallons of water that needs to go into your sump to prevent an overflow depending on your tank size.

Also, what size sump do I need for a 180 gallon tank? 100 gallon sump would be nice with the 180 tank. In any case, for a sump to work properly (as a sump only) it has to be able to contain all the drain back water when you shut your pumps off.
