    anything from 10-40g should be fine.

    Just depends on what equipment you want to put in it and how much space you have

    DIY is best as you can customize it to suit your needs while saving a ton of cash. The pre-built ones border on highway robbery price wise. And you should try to fit the biggest that you can in the space that you have. Well, make sure that it's within reason so that you have room to work. The higher the total volume of water, the more stable things will be.
