Yeah I can see that. I've got a 24" 2 bulb fixture over my 25g now but was going to add another 4 bulb fixture along to grow sps. Do you think it's possible I sell my 2 bulb fixture to buy 4 ATI bulbs and just get a 4 bulb fixture to grow montipora and other LPS?

Well montipora is not lps but it is a fairly easy sps to grow, you shoukd have no problem with lps even with your two bulb fixture assuming you have T5's. A four bulb T5 fixture should be fine for sps assuming your tank isn't extremely tall

I have a 24" tall 54 corner with a AquaticLife 4-bulb T5 with ATI bulbs (2) aquablue specials, and (2) blue pluses. I'm growing a few SPS's with no issue, and really good growth.

I wouldn't put them in the sandbed, but middle-to-top so far so good.
