You may be able to keep a milliapora, but that light is too low to really keep any color. Most brightly colored Acropora require very intense lighting. The General rule is. Blue,pink and purple require the most light.

I am also having luck with a stag, Acropora formosa. Stalk primarily a greenish brown with electric blue/purple tips.

Cheers
Steve
