    Sure, same as an "accidental" frag caused by maintenance, etc.

    I am getting ready to upgrade to a 75 gallon (48in x 18in) and I want to do mostly SPS. Would two dual coral life T5 HO fixtures with 2 Blue Plus ATI bulbs in each be sufficient? I would also have two 24in Current USA IC Loop LEDs to add shimmer. Thank you.

    IMO, I wouldn't but only my opinion. For a lighting recommendation you might want to look at the Kessil A 360 WE (2 of them) and the AquaticLife T5 HO Hybrid. Of course there are many options available.

    It's called micro-scrubbing. Me explaining won't be any good so i'll refer you to a video that explained it to me.
