I'm not sure but I don't think you would need a sump for horses. Maybe just an HOB filter?

hexagon tanks are rather hard to take care of because of their shape. You do not need a sump but a hob filter you would need. Skimmer isnt needed but you really should get one. For the lighting are you wanting this to have corals in it?
