I have a 125 gallon tank with 72" long. I have corals and fish. Currently I have:

1. Two 48" T5 (Hagen) at 54W each.

2. Six 36" T5 (Nova Extreme) at 39W each. There are two light strips, one has 2 and the other has 4 (it has cooling fan).

There are three light strips inside the canopy. Please advise if I need to replace these with just a single 8 bulb T5 fixture instead to keep the heat down if that makes any difference? Thanks DP
