If you plan to have some SPS and clams eventually, then I would go with a halide with actinics rather than a 4x96w PC set up.

4x96w PC would be enough light for some SPS, but I would avoid cluster, bush, and other dense growth form Acroporas. I would also avoid any of the 1st grade or ultra grade Maximas as well as Croceas. Montipora sp., Seriatipora, Porites, T. derasa, T. squamosa, and gold T. maximas should do fairly well, although growth and color achieved may not be optimal.

4x96 PC's would be fine for most anemones, soft corals, and LPS
