Excellent thread! I'm in the same boat..just starting up a 65 gallon FOWLR tank and I've considered getting a sump. Basically, the way I see it is that a sump can always be added later; and the added work involved in setting it up right away could be used in other areas. I'm currently running a Magnum 350 canister filter...not sure how that would work with a sump tho. I intend on getting everything started then probably adding a sump later and possibly upgrading my equipment. I was going to get a narrow protein skimmer to hang on the back of the tank so later on I could just stick it in the sump. Also, I don't see any reason that you would HAVe to drill holes in the tank for a sump.
