The more I see videos and display tanks in the LFS's I wish I would have gotten better lights so I can keep SPS's. IF I were you I would see if I can find a 6 bulb fixture. I think you can keep anything you want with that much light. LiveAquaria has a nice AquaticLife Six Lamp T-5 with built in timer for $529.99. But I am willing to bet that if you have more patents than I do you will be able to find one on Craigs list for half that.

I keep SPS under a 4 bulb fixture on a 40g tank, they grow just fine, I use 2x giessman actinics and 2x giessman blue plus.

I kinda just took measurements of my tank and built to it. I used half inch finished plywood, 2x4s for support, top and base. 3/4 plywood to sit tank on and 1x for trim roughted

Right now I have Zoas, shrooms, a frogspawn, 2 Monti caps, and some polyps. I would like to be able to support sps if I wanted. It's a shallow tank 16"
