Lol jus not sure bout some things do I have to have the sump tank an skimmer I have t5 4x39 lights with 4 l.e.d.s
You don't need a sump, they are nice to have, but not nec. I ran a 135 tall on 2 magnum 350's, and a hang-on-tank 115 coral life super skimmer for 5 years! 376w of T5, full LPS and soft reef with few SPS at top of column. Also had fish with 2 large tangs + others. The key was changing and cleanings the microns weekly and 15 gal water changes every 2 weeks.

You could look into a overflow if you don't want to drill

I would suggest drilling the tank over using a siphon overflow.
It's very easy and a much better set up.
here you can buy everything you need, including the drill bit. Well, not everything...you'll need to buy a small container of plumbers putty.
