Is this going to be a Reef? FOWLR? Need some more info on what your plans are.

You can transfer about half your stock from your other tank into the new one. You need to worry about keeping the fish you have happy before you look at new anything.

Would I have to have a sump ? Or could I have a few big filters ?

Read on sumps and the benefits. Do a sump. Hide heaters, beneficial macro algae, and a place to dump other stuff.

a sump is nice because not only does it hide everything, it also hold more water thus polutents are diluted more and will take longer to harm the rest of the aquarium. but a large canister filter is possible to be run as well

Those would work for a Fish only...If you got LR it would be redondent and only cause trouble down the road.
