With the light you have, any softies and some LPS's ahould be ok. I had a 4x55 on my 75 and my softies grew like crazy. I have a hammer, candy cane and a lobo as well. I have a 2x250 MH setup now but all survived under the PC lights. I have a few SPS now

I agree, zoanthids, a favorite of most reefers, and lots of other softies will do fine, and some LPS. Some limited SPS would probably be OK in the upper portion of your tank, caps, digitatas, Stylophora, Hydnaphora...

1 Green Zoanthid (saw under actinic and said that was it)
1 Royal Gramma

I thought about it this time, I just wasn't sure on our schedule (new baby and all). I'll give him a call next time.
