Hello again D...
I would be concerned about proper gas exchange on a tall tank. You're likely already aware there's a minimum of surface area on such a tall tank, so you
need plenty of surface movement to get oxygen into the water and allow carbon dioxide to escape.
I have two larger HOBs running in addition to rubber tubing attached to a large air pump to keep the tank water aerated.
I like the T5 bulbs. I've never used the high output ones, but have light strips with 2 X 28 watt T5s and LEDs on my larger tanks.
What brand of lighting and fixtures are you using? Just curious.
