That acro will let you know. Acros usually need very high amounts of light and flow compared to some other sps

I would suggest some medium lighting requirement SPS. Many will chime in. There are some acros, chalices and several others that don't require a lot of PAR.

In general, I agree. But I have some acros growing fine in as little as 300 PAR.

Many deepwater varieties don't require as much light.

What Greg posted isn't a deepwater. Usually they're harder to come by.
