i plan to use charcoal for a day in the next few (once i buy some) is this good for the sps?
A low PO4 carbon is best. Don't buy the cheap stuff. As far as being "good" for the acro, it's an up in the air and ongoing discussion by many reef hobbiest but IME it goes along way to doing much more good than it ever could harm. I would also suggest avoiding Seachems Seagel. It's matrix carbon mixed with an aluminum oxide PO4 sponge.

Cheers

the Acropora that i added a bit ago is doing great still. the guy i got it from gave me more frags some Montipora sp. and some Acropora sp. his tank is only PC and it seemed his SPS were doing great including his Acropora. he said the system is 5+ years old and maybe thats why theyre doing so well. they werent even at teh highest points in the tank, butjust midlevel!
anyway, he gave me a bunch of goodies and im excited. the xenia and anthelia and devils finger and colt and zoos will be recovering from their surgery today.
he gave me some green star polyps too! cool!

sorry no digi camera at this point in life... but i can explain.
the polyps are extended nicely. the skeleton structure has as much and as vibrant a color as its mother colony had befor fragging. these are good signs right. no sign of RTN BTW.

thank you all for all the help!
i now have dozens of species of branching acropora and montipora frags that seem to be doing great! the montipora are growing extremely rapidly!
is it bad for the organisms to have a high Ca level (500+ ppm) b/c i added too much for a while and my levels are high...whoops...
