Most people will say switch to LED completely, as you could update it for under a few hundred dollars and have more than enough light to sustain any type of coral...

You could toss a 2 or 4 bulb T5 retrofit kit over it, or you could supplement with LED, or you can remove the VHOs and go all led.
If you like the VHOs and want to keep them I would just look for a 2 x 54 watt retrofit kit and place it next to them.

Here you go...all you need are some ATI lamps to plug in-
2,3,4 or 6 Lamp T8 Fluorescent Light - 95% Enhanced Miro 4 or White Reflector - 2ft x 4ft T8 Troffer | Retrofit Lighting Kit
