36" Reptisun 10.0 T5HO too much for a 4'x2'x2' Crossfire?

Wondering if I've got too much UVB for the Tank.

He's got Platforms where he can go all the way up to the light, or be completely hidden from it, so im sure there is a proper gradient. Just wondering if the T5HO is actually TOO Much for him.

I'll try to get pictures up of his new tank soon.

It's not too much in a 4x2x2. I personally use the 22" in my 4x2x2s but as long as your dragon has an escape from the rays it is fine.
What fixture are you using? The sunblaster?

I wouldn't use the t8 in the 4x2x2.

And heres the lights just for good measure:

I'm working on getting pictures of his enclosure up, because i know its easier to diagnose/critique if you can see it!

As long as the fixture is pushed all the way to one side, and not in the middle, it should be ok. This allows a better gradient for the cool side uv exposure.
