I would go with what Mike gave you. I'm confused...What do you mean by 4 rows?

The only problem I see is that 39w bulbs don't have the PAR to get enough light to the bottom of your tank. You should be able to do Zoa, mushrooms and leathers as well as Duncans with no problem.

Would a couple 54w bulbs placed in the center of the fixture do the trick. I don't really want any high light or extreme water flow corals. I am moving around 2300gph between the sump pump and the powerheads. Thanks for the help.

Do these bulbs have individual reflectors around them on the fixture?

No, there is one big reflector for the whole fixture. If it would do better, I can fab up a reflector. Just let me know what material to use and I can do it. On a side note, I had to boil a piece of rock, I think it had red hair algae(red in color and looked like pillow stuffing.) Done a full range of tests and showed 0 for phosphate and nitrate,ammonia,nitrite.
