    It would depend on how you want your set up to be honest.

    I have a upright 350litre tank

    i have used,

    400 flat good if need to put stuff on top, but find get lots of air blocks
    400 upright great, keep going back to it
    650 flat like driving a boat
    350 flat air blocks,
    2 x 125 together was fine, some times i think i am better off get a few of these and using them
    250 flat, same as 400 flat,

    I use a 250lt flat tank as I wanted to have space above it. Never had an airlock in mine and I've used it for just over a year now. Also depends on how you set up the pipe work.

    I got non return valves fitted to both my pumps so no air could get trapped, then when I stopped the water just refilled the pipe and away you go.
