You will have lots of shadows with kessil
For a mixed tank that's perfect. OP: Kessil's will look great and you can always add some LED bars in the future or other LED's of your choice. The great thing about contrast (shadows) is that it gives you an opportunity to put lower light animals in those spots, win, win! Don't be afraid of shadows. If you were going full sps, then Kessil's would still work, but you would probably want to add panel style lights or more bars to fill in the shadows more, but again, there are certain acropora and sps that do well in shaded areas. If you've ever snorkeled before, then you know what a real reef looks like, it's a beautiful mess. Cheers!

Is there such a thing as an "easy" acro?
