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.
