Any low light sps in biocube 29?

I was wondering if there are any sps that could thrive in a biocube.

With stock lights, no. But you can upgrade to LEDs for $200. Kind of expensive, but when you think about it, that is 2.5 years of replacement bulbs costs. And they last for 15 years.

I've kept an acropora with power compacts and I actually have a beautiful birdsnest under the power compacts right now.... You would just need to put it high up. I think people underestimate the bio cube lighting tbh.

Most millipora, birdsnest, montipora will do fine some acros also one main thing is keep all mid to high in tank and ensure alkalinity 11 or 12 calcium 420 - 480 you would be surprised how much grow you could get by keeping that stability
