We have a 75 gallon reef tank that we recently purchased and set up at the office. It has a 10 gallon sump with the typical 3 compartments. I want to upgrade to a larger sump and a local store offered this Eshopps wet-dry filter for a very good price. What are your thoughts on it? Should i stick with a standard sump setup?

10 gallon is a very tiny sump....

With some plastic bins you can easily build a sump that holds 30 gallons+

Wet/Dry Sump= Freshwater. They are often more hassle than they are worth with saltwater since they trap stuff you don't want. Go with a regular wet sump. You can easily do a DIY sump with a dollar per gallon tank from Petco.
