I would say you could get away with any softy and some lps if you had two of those or if they were 3w leds then sps would more then likely be possible but I'd imagine keeping parameters as consistent as sps needs would he difficult in 4gs anyways

well two is not an option unfortunately. this will go over a aqueon evolve 2 or 4. if it was over the 2 (9 inches deep) what could i keep with just the one? and the same for the 4 gallon (10.5 deep) it said they were 600 lumens

In either tank you MIGHT be able to get away with one acro or something but I really couldn't see it doing very well in such a small amount of water due to frequent fluctuations in salinity temperature PH and trace elements..on the bright side though you can get great colors from lps which I think would do just fine as long as you watch parameter closely

I just wanna make it known though I'm by no means a sps specialist I run a mixed reef and have a general knowledge of them but to get a true sps junky to answer you would be best
