Those deminisions sound like a 150-180gallon tank. Do you know for sure how many gallons the tank is? Either way you have over 260 watts of light so you are between one and two watts per gallon. Depending on what type of lights you have(are the 80's CFL or what, and are the T5's HO or not?) you could be out of the low light range and into the medium to high range.
