Thanks for all the replies you guys. I don't think I'm going to go with a halide just because of the light intensity, the heat, and the cost (I'm a poor college student). I'll probably try out the Corallife PC fixture. I've seen them do a good job at work with some sps, even though it's probably not the best for them. I figure its a shallow tank so light saturation should be good. If not, I'll probably just steer away from any sps.

Update: Tank is up (I went with a 15 gallon). I have 93 watts of light over it with a five watt light over an AquaClear 70 to create a little refugium. There's about ten pounds of live rock in there right now. It is cycled and I just added some nassarius snails and some blue mushrooms that came from my roommates live rock.
