You could get a deepwater acropora with what you have now. along with others. Not all sps require a ton of light. I have a green birdsnest that was under 2 400 watt halides at the lfs for three months........put it in my tank with lighter lighting and the colors took off. Sometimes a little less light is better. So that T5 set up should work just fine for you! I know having a 37 sucks! I have a 29 and its the same lovely 30 inches. I have 4 24" VHO bulbs. coming in at 300 watts. im building a new hood now.....because mine looks like hell.......and im going to put 4 standard 20 watt actnics in with a 250 halide. Probably. Unless you have gone off the deep end like I have....that T5 lighting would be perfect. Im addicted to making my system grow corals like they are on steriods.
