lighting

I'm sure this gets asked often enough, but I wanted to upgrade my lighting and wasn't sure if my choice would cover what I need.

Can anyone tell me if 2 36" fixtures will be enough to support any type of corals? Each fixture has 2 96W PC bulbs. One 10,000k and one actinic. My tank is 125g wide.

I'm sure I'm neglecting to cover something.... Any help would be appreciated.

How long/deep is the tank? A 4x165w VHO (72") should cover a fair amount of coral types. Including some select species of SPS.

Cheers
Steve

what are the dimensions of a 125 wide? Is it the standard 72 x 18 x 24? Or is shorter and wider?
