Well I'm no expert but that sounds like a $h!t ton of light. I believe that those actinic bulbs are more suited towards reef aquariums. I think plants aren't too picky about specific wavelengths but the more light means more co2 and nutrients.

If you could balance 8 x 54w t5ho lighting with the appropriate amount of c02 and nutrients I'd reckon you'd see olympic gold medal type plant growth, but I implore you not to take my word for it
