HArd to say. The lights are only 150 HQI so the heat won't be that bad. Plus there is fans in the hood and the mounting legs bring it up off the tank so there is a good possibility you will be okay. I do not like to say definately yes or no but i would think it would be about 60/40 that you will not need a chiller.

I would be careful about heat without a sump. My sump stays cooler then the main, so it helps keep the temp down. I have it setup so at night, the heater comes on with the night lite, and my temps stay at 79-80. So basically, the halides warm it during the day, and the heater at night.

A chiller was a must for me with those lights.
They get hot.
