Lighting situation.

Ok here is my situation lol

I have a 48" 2 bulb T5 that's on there now and I need to upgrade so I can do sone nicer corals but I don't have the money. But I also have a 36" 2 bulb T5 fixture that is doing nothing. Could I throw that one on top with the 48" so then I would have 4 bulbs and keep some nicer coral?

I have a 75 gallon tank and want to do corals. I have a couple zoas in there now and they are doing great.

Thanks!

LPS are low light with moderate flow, so at the bottom of the tank, yes.
