Control center or reactor space? Finalizing sump size

So trying to narrow down the sump size, and torn between saving the last few inches for like an enclosed control center to try and cut down the salt creep or mounting all the electronics in the back panel and saving the extra space for reactors. Any thoughts or opinions?

Keep the electronics out of the sump if at all possible.
I mounted mine on a board next to the tank.

Tank is going on a corner next to a door way so outside space has limited, other then the closet on the other side of the door way. I plumbed the floor with 6 pipes so if need be, I guess I can run the reactors in the closet
