Im new to keeping live plants and really have no idea if the aquarium I just bought has sufficient lighting and if not what to buy. I have an All-Glass 55g tank that came with 2, 24" fixtures. This is a link to the fixtures.

The bulbs say 15w, so if Im figuring this out correctly 30/55 comes out to .5 wpg. Is this far too low? If so, do I need a different kind of fixture, like twin tube?? Also what bulbs would be appropriate? Now all I need is lighting conditions for low to moderate growth. Also something that is cost effective. Below is a link to the store I buy from. Thanks for the help!

Is there any difference between the red and green boxes of the aqualights other than the bulb it comes with?
nope just the bulb.
Green box = 6700K bulbs
Red = 50/50
