Budget is $200 for filter.
$100 for main lighting.
$50 for moonlighting.

These are desired maxes. I'm somewhat flexible and wouldn't flinch at paying 25% more for any item.

Cheaper LED lighting ....

I am totally mistified by the $100+ price tags on some of these LED fixtures. My thought is that they are hobbycentric thus overpriced.

I think I've looked up CPVC before to see if it would work for me. I can't remember why, but you should stay away from it.
