Default Psyched with my CL find! Will this work?

I found a Coralife 48" CFL Lunar Aqualight. It features 4 21" CFL's ( I am thinking two 6500k and two 10,00k bulbs) with directional LED's. It is an older model of this (possibly the same model)

I am getting it for a great price!

Will this be too much for a standard 55 Gal or 75 Gal?

I have a 55 sitting in the basement and this will either go on her or spur a sale of a 55 and search for a 75. I may set up the 55 for a while since funds are low, then move the light to an new to me 75.

The temporary 55 would be a Kribs and Crypt's tank with a big piece of drift simulating a tree root system on the left and a stacked rock cave on the right. I would want an almost half-pipe like substrate. This tank would be pretty heavily planted with Crypts, Moss, Bacopa and Rotala.

Will this fixture work and not melt the plants?
