Is it possible to have a tank with both softies and SPS?

My aquarium has softies, anemones, LPS, and 4 sps corals. I think it is very possible. The main problem is the soft corals taking over everything. So if you keep them low in the tank and prune/frag regularly you should do just fine.

yes it is easily possible

as above, be sure the softies don't take over, and I suggest using carbon to prevent terpenoid wars within the water column

just keep an eye on spacing, and try to avoid the more toxic softies. i personally have an orange plating monti that has grown to the point of bumping my toadstool, and so far there's been no negative reaction from either. fragging usually does the job long term.
