    Hi guys n gals,
    i'm thinking of adding SPS corals to my system, my current setup as follows:
    Satandard 4FT DT
    2 x 150W MH 20k
    2 x 84W T5 14k both blue
    2 x 39W T5 10k 1 White 1 Blue
    2 x Seio 1000 prop Power Heads
    I have a small sump consisting of 3 compartments: 1. TS1 Skimmer, 2. live rock + Chaeto, 3. Hailea HX6530 Return pump

    Q: will my system accommodate SPS or not? If not, what can I do to improve it?
    Feed back/advise appreciated:thumbup:

    Lighting will be fine.

    I'm just a little unsure about the flow that SPS needs.

    With the lighting and flow you have I wouldn't go for acroporas. Maybe a monti to start.

    Sorry only read the t5 part first. The lighting you have will easily house any sps. Now just the flow. Maybe add 2 x sunsun 5000lph. The you could keep any sps.
