I'm curious, if I wanted to put a couple SPS in the tank, could I place them in the center up higher in the tank, closer to the light and them do okay?

If you do, aee what lighting the original tank has, and the corals placement. If its similar power to yours you may need to acclimate the coral by slowly bringing it up higher over a few weeks. if you get LPS you need calcium. I have lps and every few weeks check levels and dose as needed with a large bottle of calcium.

We never needed to dose calcium and have 6 acans of various sizes, caulastrea, frogspawn, scolymia, and a lobophyllia. The salt mix should provide enough calcium. If you do decide to dose it, get a test kit first. I'd never recommend dosing something you can't at least test for.

That list looks pretty good to me. It's not complete without an acanstrea though.

I'm assuming that's some type of super rare coral because I google imaged that and got 1 actual image....ONE!!! I think that's the first time I've ever googled any image and got less than 999999 results...
