What Hard Corals Do You Think I Could Keep?

I was wondering what if any hard corals I could keep? I have 460w of CF lighting. Check my profile for more tank info.

TIA!

LPS - Hammer branching or ridge, Frogspawn branching or ridge, Open Brain, Torch, closed brain, bubble coral, fox coral, pagoda, Candy Cane

SPS - dont have as much exp. on these but i think u may be able to do some lower demanding sps's such as ridge coral, encrusting and branched montipora

Montipora Digita or caps would be ok. I think I have read Stylophora(sp?) are less light demanding.

Might be ok with some harder species if you put them high in the tank. You have a good bit of light.

You could keep quite a bit in that.... I've got horn (sps) in mine and a few open brains (lps) and I've only got 4x65w in a 60gal tank.... they're all doing fine..... You could probably get away with all LPS and quite a few SPS
