Attention Reefers Especially New To SPS keeping. I remember the time when I first bought my first SPS. I was excited upon collecting. It was a Radioactive BirdNest and it died 2days later. I was a Noob then and i didnt know what i was doing.
Sad lor...but I didnt give up. I kept on trying and learning until I found a way to keep a mix reef tank with a simple setup in a small tank.
The Following SPSes found at the end of this post is up for sale and they are great for reefers who wants to try to add SPS to their tank, without burning a hole in the pocket. I have a relatively simple tank set up which these SPSes have been conditioned and adapted to. So they are really hardy and the chances of survival is higher...especially if your tank setup is better than mine . These SPSses dont just survive, they thrive.
The following are some information about my tank specs and maintenance.

Some Premium SPS like the SSC are harder to keep and some SPS like Digi are easier to keep. Not all SPS needs a complicated setup to survive and thrive. Think that SPS couldn't survive in your tank....? well think again. Once you have build up the confidence to keep SPS...you can then consider to keep Premium and higher end SPS.
So Good News Is That The Fun Never ENDS. : )
These SPSes are hardy and has been through a lot with me.
Buy with confidence instead of chances. If your tank and has the conditions and parameters that I've mentioned above, Chances are they will survive.
