I have a 6x54w T5HO Tek fixture on my 120g. I run 2x54w all day, with a midday burst of all 6 bulbs for 2 hours.
So it goes:
3 hours: 2x54w
2 hours: 6x54w
3 hours: 2x54w.
Works well for me. The tanks is full of anubias, crypts, and java fern. Came to this schedule after trial and error. I wanted as much light as possible for growth while minimizing algae.
Addendum: The 6x54w TEK fixture is entirely too much for what I use it fore, but I got it on a really good deal and used to use it on a stem-plant 75g tank.
