As large as your situation allows. Some people are restricted by the size of the stand the tank sits on, others are not. Just make sure the sump can, at least, handle ALL of the overflow from the tank in the event of power loss using Reef Central's Sump Volume Calculator.

40 breeder is a nice size if you don't need room for additional equipment under the stand.
