Lighting for Nano Reef

I am in the process of gathering information for a nano reef tank. The tank I have in mind is 12 gallons and the dimensions are 15"l x 15"w x 13"h. That makes lighting choices limited unless I want to go with CF, which I don't. I am considering the 18" Nova Extreme T5HO 2 x 18w. I figured I would install (2) of them over the tank for a total of 72w. Is it OK to install 2 fixtures and would I be limited on coral selection using these 2 fixtures?

Thanks in advance for any help and opinions!
