Nuvo 40 Build SPS/LPS

I am looking into Nuvo 40 how about this setup for SPS/LPS tank?

- IM Nuvo 40G
- IM 40G stand
- 30 lbs of LR
- Barebottom no sand
- Tunze 3155 ATO
- Tunze 9044 skimmer

Have not decided powerhead yet, trying to budget right now. Which powerhead would you recommend? Hydor koralia or Tunze? I like Ecotech MP10s but its expensive.

Have not decided on lighting. Planning to grow Seriatopora, Stylo,Montipora, Acan and Brain. Looking at Al Hydra 26 HD would this LED be overkill or would Al Prime lighting works?

mp10's or gyre for powerheads, you can find them decently priced here second hand. Two hydra 26's should be able to grow anything.
