Budget lighting and that sort of depth won't go well together. You might try tying Java Moss to rough rocks and using that to make a carpet of sorts. Even that isn't likely to work if you have a deep...

If you were lighting a tank 8 inches deep that light MIGHT work.

For a 55, it won't.

If you want medium light LED on a 55, I think some people are liking the Finnex Ray2.

If you have even ONE cat outside, you're doing a ton of environmental damage. Don't kid yourself.

It drops the cat's life expectancy by more than half, too.

Most fish, even CPDs, eat shrimplets.

Otos won't, and pygmy cories might not. That's about it, other than some pleco species that won't fit in an 8G.
