I would look for a 6 bulb fixture for an 18" wide tank.....

The Nove Extreme Pro 6x39w would be perfect for a 40B.....

It will definitely keep SPS if they are centered below the fixture. I had a 4 bulb Tek over my 40B and SPS did great. A six bulb will help the front to back spread a bit, but it isn't really needed if you place your corals accordingly. I have read the bulb in that are sub-par (pun intended) so plan to replace them pretty quickly.

Oh, and I had the 2 bulb version of that fixture over a 20L and liked it just fine. One complaint was that the screws on the ends of the fixture started to rust a little after about 6 months. I pulled them all out and replaced them with stainless.
