I use compact florescents on my 54 gallon reef, which is stocked with a similar mix of corals, and I have been happy with the growth. There are a number of these units available at reasonable costs online. Check out Aquarium Supplies, Pet Supplies and Pond Supplies by That Fish Place - That Pet Place.
