with a 112 gallon tank I would definitely go with a sump and viparspectra lights.
I actually like using aragonite from Caribsea as my substrate. Been using it for awhile now and have not have any issues. I'm sure your going to get a lot of answers. But remember, it's all opinion.

My preference is using Pink Figi sand (not really pink) as a deep sand bed.
I agree with HeathS as far as a sump goes. That way you can put most if not all of your equipment (heaters, skimmer, etc) in the sump leaving your tank uncluttered.

You may already have your filtration set by now. I have hang on back with Marinelands 350 with Bio wheels. I also have a Fuval 407 canister. I did add two extra filter inserts on the Marineland with Seachem bio filter media. You will never ever need to change out. All my chemistry is always at “0”.
