**** for that money you could get any of the high range leds. The maxspect razor nano is awesome for $290. Best bang for your buck IMO. Or you could spend like $600 and get a radion but not worth spending more when you could get the razor and it would work great. Is it a 20 high or long

No knowledge of the vertex but it looks nice. However IMO unless you're planning on upgrading soon why not go with the the cheaper light. It is just as good, will grow whatever and you can spend the other $700 on nice equipment like an mp10 or nice skimmer or both
