Thumbs up New Lighting for a 150 gallon- 6 ft open top tank.-UPDATED! GROWTH PICS!

Wow...I love this hobby. After reading for days about lights I am just going to post a question to the field:

I need lighting for a 150 gallon - 6 foot long tank. Heavily planted
* Open top Tank
* Can be LED, MH (did T5 already on two others with great success)
* Would like Pendants or Pendant like lights to hang from ceiling

This is for my personal office where I spend 10 hours most days
It will be an Angelfish species tank -something I have always wanted to do since I saw my first cover of TFH.

Money - well as with most things I don't want to over pay but willing to put out the cash. LOL! This tank will be only 5 feet from my desk so the lights should be quiet.

Thank you for read and I hoping for some guidance.
