Is this going to be a reef or FOWLR?

It's going to be very difficult lighting this with T5 lamps. You will either have to go 36" or 48"....
Personally, I have not seen better growth with T5 over any other lighting, besides power compact. It's all a matter of how much...how many lamps, and what brand they are...what type of reflectors...etc.

You are going to have to run the t5 lamps front to back, and use 36" fixtures, or retro kits.
To cover 41" though.....two 8 lamp fixtures? That's gonna be $350.00-$400.00 every 9 months in bulbs. I think you should build your own LED hood to cover this thing.
