No, you do not need to drill holes. You could build a sump/fuge and have PVC piping. You really don't need that, but the added water volume would be helpful. Also, depending on what corals you want, will dictate your lighting.

As Scott mentioned it does not need to be drilled. What size tank and what type lighting will be used?

Here is a good calculator for converting size to gallons.

Looks like a 120 gallon tank. You`ll need to figure out what type corals you want and then get the appropiate lighting. Good luck
