Acropora... Am I ready?

I was wondering if you guys I could keep an ORA Blue Voodoo alive. I'm not really into SPS but this from unique coral really caught my eye-
Acropora sp. ORA "Blue Voodoo" Staghorn - 2" Stock Frag .

SPS wise I only have a birdsnest and a monti. The birdsnest completely bleached out and made a swift recovery. Only really the tips are still bleached. The monti is growing pretty well. I've already fragged it a few times. I also have 2 bubble tip anemones that are doing well. I don't test often but my last test was
0 nitrates
Phosphates 0.2
alk- 11.5 dkh
mg- 1440
calc- 480

That was before running high capacity GFO. I am now running GFO so the phosphates are probably lower.

What are my chances?

90g Reef
30g Long Frag Tank
10g Planted
3g Pico Reef

I think you'd be fine. I don't find it overly difficult for an ORA coral

The tips of birdsnest look bleached because they are growing and haven't grown the tissue to give it color yet.

I would say go for it.
