You could suplement them with some extra T5s using an external controler (the Hagen range are much cheaper than Arcadia ones). Just put a tube clip in the middle of each tube and rest this on the brace bar, then attach the cables to your existing light fitting to hold it all in place and act like a hinge. I used this method succesfully recently, ended up replacing my lighting completely though with a luminaire.
