3 different lights... which corals should go where?

I bought this light...


...and should be getting in on wednesday. I'll be using it on my Red Sea Max 130 (34g), but also have two other nanos, one with 36w pcs and one with some crappy 1w leds (marineland). What I need help with is, what corals do I put where? Would it be best to keep softies in the less well lit tanks, and move all of my lps under the new light? What about rics and zoas? Any tips on photoacclimating the tank to the new light? How much should I have it dimmed at first?

If anyone is really bored and wants to suggest where I should put certain corals for best growth, here is a list of what I have.

green star polyps
fungia plate
trumpet coral
kenya tree
elephant ear mushroom
green sinularia
pagoda cup
devils hand
red goniopora
mini carpet 'nem

and the options are

34g cube with 120w led
5g with 21w marineland led strip
12g biocube with 2 36w power compacts (ywg/pistol shrimp tank)

Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!
