new tank home

Good news guys I have transfter the 180 gallon tank to my house. I already put everythign in except for the fish. Im waiting for the tank to clear out and give it another day to cycle. Im still having a hard time deciding whether to get the tek lights or my mh set up. The tek is 4x54 with reflectors and is 4 ft long. The mh set up is 175x2 and 55x2 which has a more power than the tek but the downside is its only 3ft long. Can you guys recommend me which one to use. I will take some pics and post my set up later once I find my digital camera lol.

I'd use the Tek. Better coverage, no heat issues, cheaper to run.

Why not go for the 6x54 watt model?

In no aquariums for a while.....
