Very nice. Nice job!
Do yourself a favor, if your planning on Corals, ditch those Bio Balls.

They will for Soft Corals and like Mushrooms and Zoas. Its not really alot of light if you look that it has one Actinic, which doesn't count a white light, and one white light. Thats why a 4 lamp unit was suggested. If you used 2 white 10k lights in each unit you could get away with them. But you will not like the coloring of the tank in the long run.
But, yes, those will work using 2 10k lamps.

It will be fine for the same as stated above, Sofites and Mushrooms. Unless you use 4 White 10k lamps. Then you could do LPS and some SPS.

2 of these and you could keep anything you wanted under them. A third and forth down the road and skies the limit.

Or fork over for LEDs.

Just a quick note, that stand needs more support on the edges, two more pieces of 2x4 at each corner. The whole weight of the tank is resting on 5 pieces of wood at the moment. There is nothing stopping each corner from buckling under the weight of the tank. It is nearly there but with the added extras it will be well supported.

The inside of the top and bottom of each side should have another piece of 2x4 across the width of the stand, also as it is a 72" stand, you NEED another support in the middle.
