That is correct. The 54w is HO. The T number is the diameter in eighths of an inch. A T5 is 5/8" in diameter, a T8 is 1", and a T12 is 1" in diameter.
Also from another post I found that the Nova Extreme Pro has individual rounded refelctors. They should be close to the efficiency of a parabolic reflector,, but I don't have any data to support that conclusion.

Not sure if you're aware, but the new Nova Extreme Pro has individual reflectors for each bulb. I have the 36" model and love it! The individual reflectors really seem to make a difference. I'm only running 4 out of 6 bulbs on my 45 gallon!
So i guess its ok?
