Every coral is different and has different lighting requirements. You could keep zoas, mushrooms, softies and some LPS corals with that light...

I agree compact lighting will only be enough for zoas, plays leathers and some LPS. If you want to keep SPS I would recommend upgrading you're lighting if possible.
