It's probably going to sound stupid but I'm not wanting to kill my sps. I have dual metal halides on my 125g which makes the shimmer effect. If day the shimmering doesn't hit a specific area and I put an sps acro there will it receive enough light? Like the sides of my tank don't have a lot of the shimmering mainly on just the right. If I put a frag there will it still receive enough light to grow?

I think you should show a photo of your tank with the lights on.

Shimmer (with halide or led) is caused from surface agitation. Im thinking that If there is no shimmer on the edge/ends of the tank then it could be one of two things...

it doesn't have surface agitation
OR
there is not enough spread from the light.
