t5 lights can definitely keep sps. as a matter a fact sps can look awesome and thrive under T5's. the trick is to make sure you have a quality fixture, good water movement and good water quality. that being said, digitas, montiporas are two of the easier type of sps to keep. acro on the other hand require a tighter range of water quality, movement and filtration. typically if you want to keep sps using t5's i'd suggest a fixture that has individual reflectors for each bulbs, and active cooling for the bulbs to maximize light output for efficiency and longevity of bulb life. don't let anyone tell you t5's can't keep sps because i've seen some beautiful setups under t5's with my own two eyes. not pictures or online but fellow hobbiests actual tanks.
