too much light?

Hello all, I have a 25 gallon tank that until today had two 33 watt 
flourescent fixtures on it.  Well, one of them died, and being on a 
budget, I went to a hardware store and picked up a 25 inch long 
"shop light" fixture.   It uses two 20 watt  t-12 bulbs.
     So now this tank has a total of 73 watts on it.  Is this over-kill?
Of the three bulbs, one is a white plant bulb of some sort, one is a 
GE "plant and aquarium" and one is a sylvania "cool white".  
together they look nice.
     So, comments?
