Need some opinions!!!

2. Reef EVO LED

Are these capable of sustaining sps and anemones? If so what unit would I need for a 50 or 75 gallon tank.

Right now I have a 30 but am looking to upgrade next year some time. I have a 2 bulb T5 HO now and my lps are happy but I was thinking I would like an anemone if I get a larger tank, I might try to keep my lighting and add to it. I don't want to hijack this thread but I am just trying to get as much input on lots of LEDs.
