Well, let me say...I think your tank is a bit overstocked, but that is a different thread. Do you feel like you have room in this tanks for SPS??

For your lighting I would recommend any acropora (unless you can find a frag from a healthy coral grown under similar lighting), I would stick to the Montipora (M. digitata, M. capricornis), Pavona, Stylophora, Hydnophora, Porites (maybe) and Pocillipora.

Good luck, let me know if that wasn't what you were looking for.

That should read.....

Sorry for the typo.
