    sps for beginners

    Hey all I'm looking for a more hardy sps. I have a biocube 14 with the stock lighting ish ( switched the front bulb to a 50\50 and added two 3 watt led white lights). The tank has been running for almost 2 years now. Are there any sps that would tolerate that kind of lighting / the presence of soft corals in the tank?
    Thanks

    Birdsnest, monti cap, poci are all good starters. More importantly have you tested lately what is everything at?

    Plus 1 to homie here. All good and easy to care for. Biggest thing beside lighting is going to be stability of your parameters and not necessarily where they're at.

    They are great starter sps, hard to kill and good growers.
