No, you do not have to run a sump.

Is it really just for visual appearance so the equipment isn't in site?

Yes and no. It does hide the equipment, but its also there to grow out macro algae, have extra sand, or keep a deep sand bed, extra rock, and added stability having more water.

The T-5's would be in a 48" fixture, and I believe that each would be 54w each.
