Sure, you could increase the total output, but I would do so slowly, and in relatively small increments - maybe 2% for a set period of time (a week per increase for example). I would not increase the max output more than 5% per period of adjustment.

Some soft corals can tolerate or even prosper under relatively high light intensity, whereas many LPS corals tend to prefer moderate light and suffer under higher light intensities, so placement of the individual corals will be important too. This will be relevant with a tall and narrow aquarium like yours.
