Stocking 14g

Well i have had my tank up and running know for a month, the past week the water parameters have not changed and seem steady I have added a CUC. Heres where i run into some problems. I have read the the Oceanic Biocube 14 g cant handle SPS just LPS and softies. But then again i have read It can handle any coral its kinda a mix between the two. I do know it has 1 24 watt 10k and 1 24 Watt Actinic 03 Blue. and is 16 inches tall but with live sand i bet its only about 13 inchs. From what i read about the tank handling anything it says if the tank is deeper then 24 inchs PC lighting will not work for SPS or different anemone. So am i safe with beleaving the tank can handle SPS coral or just Softies and LPS? thanks for the help

At sand level I'm getting 105 as a PAR level from researching SPS corals will b do good in it so will anemone. Am I correct?

IME lower light sps like montipora (except monti danae) and birdsnests do well under PCs if you keep them in the upper 1/3 of the tank. I wouldn't put a nem in there though. Not just because of the light, but for the sheer fact that unless you get a small species like a maxi mini, it will grow to be bigger than the tank in as little as a year.

I was thinking on mini Max anemone.

With proper lighting, and conditions, you can do whatever...

My old BioCube 14g.

He's talking about under stock lights. It appears you had LED's

A maxi should be fine as long as you put it higher up on the rocks. I would do that before adding corals so it doesn't kill anything if it goes for a walk.
