I would think if under the stand the long would be easier to get equipment in and out for maintenance. Also your compartments will be wider allowing equipment to fit easier.

Long most likely, footprint will likely dictate given sump needs.

20 Long. Ease of maintenance is a big factor in everything I do. You will always be more likely to keep up husbandry if its not something that you dread getting into.

Under construction 265G reef ready Marineland with remote sump room.
Temporary 40 breeder and 20 long frag tank.
Had 92 corner with 10G sump and 10G refugium.
