I'm just really confused lol I see A LOT of saltwater tanks that I question if they are done properly. I'm trying to start this tank without spending $1,000,000. I spend enough money on my tanks as it is and my fiancé will kill me if we shovel out a ton lol I've read a sump can be used in a non drilled tank. Is this true? I just don't want to take advice from an uneducated person.

Welcome and have fun.
Yes, with a good overflow a sump is quite easily added. Make sure the design will self start after the pump has been turned off and back on to avoid flooding.
Read up on drain types. I highly recommend a Bean Animal, a Herbie at least.
If the tank is not tempered you you can drill it yourself or have it drilled.
There are many ways to set up a saltwater tank. Some will make maintenance more frequent and sometimes a pain.
