That's tough. Everyone has there opinion.

All have pros and cons.
WWC uses radions
Brad Syphus uses metal halide and T5's
A lot of coral growers use T5's

Long answer, it depends on what you want to keep..... 

Short answer, LED! I've personally used every type of lighting on a reef tank; regular fluorescent, PC, T5, VHO, MH and LED. LED is hands down the best in nearly all circumstances because it is so easy to customize intensity and spectrum.

I agree with all of the above posts. Can you give us more information on the kinds of corals you are wanting to grow? That is a very general question.

I love that Brad Sypus is a standard! What a compliment! He sure knows how to grow them!
