Ok to double the light?

I was recently just got these two marine land led light fixtures for free from my friends dad yeateday and was wondering if I have them sit up behind my t5 lighting like the picture shows if its going to benefit coral growth any?

Probably not.... The Marineland LED's are pretty low output as far as PAR values are concerned. They will add extra illumination, but not much value as far as coral growth is concerned.
