Looking for lighting for a 6ft tank

I have my 110g (72x18x19.5) set up as a FO right now and I am considering adding corals to it. I will be taking a risk with angels, but I'd love to have both, see what corals work with what fish. I am only keeping LPS, softies, shrooms, zoos etc, absolutely no expensive twigs (SPS). So I don't need metal halides and PC's are kinda to weak for me. I'd really like HO T5s. I don't know if they come in a 6ft or I'd have to get two 3ft T5 strips. I have a 5ft HO dual 80w T5 strip right now, but don't know if that is enough, especially since my tank is 6ft. I don't know if I'll only need dual 6ft length of lights, or 4 (meaning two 3fts or 4 3fts). If anyone has any kind of lighting for a 6ft tank for sale, let me know, I may consider halides, maybe a dual 175w or hqi, nothing too expensive though, otherwise I'll just get two 3ft T5s from TPP from their sale for cheap. As far as pick up goes, I don't want to drive really much farther then an hour from 19707, pick up at THR or TPP would be great too. Thanks everyone!

I have a canopy for your size tank if you need it. It is oak.

In the canopy are 4 100w VHO lights on 2 ballasts. I can take it all apart for you if you want it.

Let me know if you are interested.
