Depends somewhat on the acro. Some require less light than others do.

What is considered high lighting?

You could try montipora. If that grows for ya then go to birdsnest. Then maybe pocillopora or stylophora. Slowly work your way into more difficult sps

I wouldnt use power compacts there a thing of the past and to expensive when buying bulbs and get very hot and use more electricity. Look at the taotronics led fixtures you will be able to keep anything under them.

Dimmable 120 watt led fixtures are now online for $99 and free shipping. It's almost crazy to consider anything else. If the panel has a problem (which most don't) then they are cheap enough to just buy another one. There are also full spectrum panels for about twice that cost if that's your favorite look. With either of these, you can grow pretty much what you want. And they burn without getting dimmer for 5 years or more. They don't heat your water up, the advantages go on and on.
