5x2x2 lighting

Hi all, my 5ft 3x150w halide set on fire yesterday so iv had to replace it with a 4ft 2x150w halide its a aqua medic ocean light with 2x14k bulbs. Not the best unit or bulbs i know but it also has 2 rows of 30 actinic blue cree led's to give it some blue.

I really like the smaller size of the 4ft and the light seems same to the eye, my question is does it give enough light for my 5ftx2ftx2ft tank? I have mainly softies a BTA and looking at getting some LPS
