new 125 gallon tank

So Ive been a guest on this forum for a couple months now. Started a 29 gallon FOWLR tank back in December. Found a lot of great information on this site.
Well today I was talking to my neighbor, and he gave me his 125 gallon tank and stand. I was just wondering what else I will need to get this thing up and running. I am planning to keep it a FOWLR tank, maybe some low light corals, but nothing too extreme. What kind of lighting would you recommend?
My next concerns are filtration and water movement. It came with a sump and bio-balls, would you recommend a drilled tank or a HOB overflow? I know ill need to get a skimmer too.
Anything else I'm over looking?
