From What i Know, 4x54watt on a 55 gallon is too much light for that tank

I'll say look at these two lighting systems

1. Finnex Ray 2 LED light (48in model) $150 i think
2. Catalina Aquarium ( They have a 3x54watt system for $148.99), but i think you should only run 2 bulbs (all 3 will cause algae)

you will need a CO2 system for medium to high light system
