In our opinion black is the best colour to go for. Also the black Red Sea Max 130D is often cheaper that its silver counterpart.
The tank and cabinet can be found for around £690 from varying online retailers. This is expesisive, but you are getting everything you need and more and the build quality and feel is second to none.
