Update- 300 gallon in wall

So like I have said in my last couple of threads, I am moving April 1st to a condo I have purchased.

Originally I was going to move my 120 gallon and get start on an in wall build.

I decided to sell the 120 g reef setup and it sold in one day, lucky for me.

I have purchased my 300 gallon tank. Starphire with dual overflow.:

ReefSolution Magasin En Ligne: 72x36x27 300 GALLON Strarphire Corner-Flo

I have also purchased my sump, which is a 150 gallon Rubbermaid cattle tank.

I purchased my skimmer as well, Vertex Alpha cone 300:

Royal-Exclusiv Vertex Alpha 300 Cone Internal Protein Skimmer (600 Gallons) :: Vertex :: Protein Skimmers :: Filtration :: Go Reef

Now I am stuck on lighting, been going in circles between these 3:

AI 6 blue sol's = 6 x $588 = $3528 Tax in plus rails

Vertex Illumina $3900 Tax in

Orphek 4 x $800 = $3200 plus tax

I know all 3 are good systems, but I need others inputs so please chime in guys.

There will obviously be a lot more to this thread, but this is where I am at right now.

Ventilation will be a big one!

The more I read I am finding out that Orphek is crap!

Not sure if anyone here has these?

I think I am going to go with the AI's, seem to have the best reviews.

I like the Vertex a lot, and you can add and modify all you want including red and purple bulbs.

Oh man, what to do lol

I think I am going to continue doing what I know works which is T5 HO + LED combo.

I had this on my 120 g and corals loved it.

So I will have to stick with this combo until more proven results come out on the LED's!
