HELP!!!!!

I'm about to start a new tank build but I don't know which one of these to pick.

1st choice is red sea 650!
I love the tank and everything about it except the lights I'm hooked on the radions
Priced 4800

My 2nd choice is 150 gallon 48x24x30
Lights- 3 radions With 2 vortex 40!
Swc extreme 180 skimmer
DIY sump 55 gallon
Alex controller
Price: around 5400

Both with have dosin pumps, reactors but the 150 will have dual reactors

What is it that you need help with?

I'm not familiar with an "Alex" controller....I assume you are talking about the Apex by Neptune Systems??

Yes apex, but I can't decide if I should go with the red sea 650 which comes with t5s or should I just go with DB 150 with the ecotech radions

I think it boils down to whether or not you want an enclosed system that includes everything or if you want to piece together a system. That is what you need to decide.

I totally agree you would have a great deal more control with the Radions...
