even tho that's not the best fixture in the world, i think if you use that fixture you will be able to keep montiporas in a 12 inch deep tank. that fixture seems to have individual reflectors for every bulb so thats good. the only thing i don't like are the bulbs. if you ever change them go with 1 KZ fiji purple and 3 giesemann atinic+ (not pure atinics!!) and pay spcia lattention to the spectrum of the bulb. this combo will give your tank a beautiful blue look and even it out with the fiji purple. you colors will pop with that combo selection. if you look at my aquarium tab in my avatar you'll see i use that combo too and the colors i get and while you are there check out the video i made. note i also use metal halides but i know for certain that those colors can be achieved using the combo i suggested above.

hmmm

i agree that more ligting is better ...but i must say i keep montipora digitata in one tank a 40 gallon breeder that has only 2 T5 39 watts and it has grown exponantialy...and in another nano 11 gallon tank i keep it with two 24 watt compacts...so it is possible...and the new light you got should allow much more diversity...it always sucks to not have the option to keep something not because of room or agresion but the sheer fact that your system isnt capable is even worse..
