i have the t5 nova extreme on my tank right now and it has 54watts on each bulb and i was just wondering if i could put bulbs that are more than 54 watts because i would like to upgrade the bulbs.

Just to add to what Hockeygmc said...you have to match the bulb to the ballast. If your ballast will fire 54w bulbs then you can't use anything other then 54w bulbs with it.
