I have never used a sump, and your statement might be accurate but I doubt they are cost effective let alone useful for anything under a 55 gallon. Maybe in a salt tank under that size but not fresh water. Again, this is only an opinion but I can't imagine a sump is a good choice for a 35 gallon let alone a 10.

And yes, if I could afford to set them up on all of my 10 gallon tanks, I would be running small canisters before anything else. Until then, my AC HOB work just fine and possibly provide more than I would expect from a canister designed for a 10 gallon.
