overkill?

is there a such thing as overkill??? ex: 30 gallon tank with 75 gallon sump... with eshopps overflow rated for 1000 gph? hahahaha serious question tho. my 75 gallon dt busted a seam and my gf wanted this go around to be a smaller tank so I chose a tank I have laying around to do an experiment with.

IMO, water volume adds to stability in the system. If you have room for a 75g sump, give it a try.

Now, the GF that wants a smaller tank, that is more troubling to me...
