hmm..i would go with 6 ATI blue plus, 4 ATI aquablue special, and 2 6500k lamps. GE makes them, as do others. you could also substitute those for UVL aquasuns or some other 10k or less lamp. maybe the ATI purple plus or Korallen Zucht Fiji purple.
you are going to want to mix and match till you find the right look, but i think the most important lamps are the blue plus.
Yes, i know a few guys that keep sps under that fixture.
you are going to want to sit it a bit closer to the tank eventually though. perhaps on the tank, with the supplied legs.

i would start the fixture a bit higher and then lower it down if possible, just so you don't shock the corals. it's going to be a substantial increase.
