not an expert but try lang, still you have to fullfill the basic requirments, good water quality, strong lighting, effecient nutrient export system, water temp, proper timely feeding and malupit na lighting.

Having a Few fish and regular water change will also help your nitrate and phosphate
stable water parameters( i use randy holmes farley 2 part DIY additives), good circulation and good lighting.

Keep the SPS on top and lps on the middle and bottom.

Also aim for the easier sps like dallas acropora, pocillopora, montipora and stylophora.
